When it comes to discovering hot new talent, there is no better opportunity to catch the best emerging live acts than grabbing yourself a ticket to The Great Escape.

The annual citywide festival takes place in Brighton every May, and 2017 promises to be its biggest year to date, running 18 – 20 May, with thousands of musicians descending on the seaside city to showcase their talents at a staggering array of venues.

TicketWeb is the UK’s leading independent music ticket agent; we’ve teamed up with gig promoters Live Nation Source to take over upstairs at Patterns starting midday Thursday 18 March to kick off The Great Escape with a day-long series of showcases. This will be followed by a complimentary bar and party serving drinks to official delegates at My Hotel from 11 p.m. until late (RSVP for drinks here).

Check out TicketWeb and Live Nation Source’s showcase preview here.
