This year’s event had it all: we got a little bit rained on, then a little bit sun-burnt and saw so many amazing artists. We were all smiling for three days straight. Below are some highlights:
First up on Day 1 was ours and Live Nation Source’s showcase with the incredible Her’s. We also enjoyed seeing Monster Florence as well as River Matthews and Jade Bird (both pictured below, respectively). Then in the evening we went solo hosting the TicketWeb Showcase. Those playing included Rosborough, Jerk Curb, Carys Selvey and Odd Beholder.
We also saw some great acts on other stages – the scarily talented Sigrid whose single “Don’t Kill My Vibe” is THE song of the summer as well as IDER (pictured below), ALMA and Gothic Tropic.
Day 2 was just as incredible kicking off with Sälen. We saw our fave Dagny (shown below) play in the sunshine, and Raye is going to be a superstar. Plus, The Pearl Harts brought on the noise.
Among our favourite artists for Day 3 were The Rhythm Method, Keir, Cosmo Pyke, Dodie, Kamikaze Girls, TeenCanteen, The Fedz, Babeheaven (shown below), Yellow Days, Cherry Glazer, Stefflon Don, Fake Laugh and Julie Byrne.

And all we can say is roll on TGE 2018! Early bird tickets for The Great Escape 2018 are just 50 quid and on sale now right here.
