Your Chance To Play The Opening Slot At The Great Escape’s New Venue, The Beach

“So you want to be a rock and roll star? / Then listen now to what I say”. So sang The Byrds on this 1967 classic.

The Great Escape may not be offering you stardom, but Europe’s best showcase for new music is offering a very rare opportunity for a local act to open proceedings at their new venue The Beach, on Saturday 19th May.

The Beach is an exciting new 2,000 capacity festival site, right on Brighton beach, and just to the east of the Brighton Palace Pier. Adding to The Great Escape’s family of 30 incredible venues, the brand new festival site will be home to two music venues, where you can watch the very best new artists from around the globe, as well as bars, food stalls, hang out areas, and pop up performance spaces.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get your music out there, and to perform in front of new music fans and music industry delegates alike. To join the likes of The Magic Gang, The Go Team, Dream Wife, and Idles, all you have to do is submit your music link to the following email address:

The cut off date for submissions is 11th May (ie, send your music before that date)

So, don’t dilly-dally. Send them your best music now!
