NEWS:  The Great Escape confirms its First Fifty artists for 2024 edition of the festival

If there is one thing that helps to get through winter it’s the announcements of line-ups for festivals in 2024. Brighton’s The Great Escape will play host to over 500 up-and-coming artists and hotly tipped talent across 35+ walkable venues, alongside the music industry-led TGE conference. The festival will kick off the 2024 festival season from 15 – 18th May 2024 and tickets start from £89.25 and are on sale here.  

Indie singer-songwriter Faye Webster is the first artist to be confirmed as performing one of the festival’s Spotlight shows at the Brighton Dome Concert Hall. With her blend of folk, indie pop, and R&B influences, Faye’s music is characterized by her heartfelt song-writing and soulful vocals. Celebrated US-Indian star Sid Sriram will top the bill at the BBC Asian Network Stage. Born in India, and raised in the United States, Sid is a multifaceted artist, celebrated for his enchanting blend of R&B, soul, and Indian classical music. His velvety, soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics have earned him a dedicated global fanbase, aided by collaborations with Jon Batiste and Quincy Jones.
