Squid, Priests, Crack Cloud & more to play DIY’s stage at The Great Escape 2019

We’ll once again by taking over Horatio’s at the end of the pier.

This year, we’re once again heading to the seaside for the annual new music bonanza that is The Great Escape and lucky for you, dear readers, we’re bringing some of our favourite new acts with us, to play the DIY Stage.

Taking over proceedings at Horatio’s at the end of Brighton pier for another year, we’ll be playing host to the brilliantly bonkers Squid, Washington DC’s Priests and Canadian collective Crack Cloud.

We’ll be hosting shows every evening of the festival - which takes place from 9th to 11th May - which will also boast performances from EUT, Chappaqua Wrestling, Mush, FUR and These New South Whales. Yep!
