DIY partners with BIMM University for The Great Escape events programme

It’s set to include two showcases from BIMM acts, plus a networking brunch.

DIY are thrilled to announce that we’re once again partnering with our longstanding collaborators BIMM to present a programme of special events at this year’s The Great Escape Festival.

On Friday 17th May (next week!), we’ll be hosting a BIMM x DIY showcase at Brighton’s seafront venue Dust, spotlighting a slate of stellar BIMM acts from across the University’s campuses. In order of appearance, you’ll be able to catch: experimental electronic artist Emileo; jazz/dance/soul polymath IMMY; infectious indie-pop quintet Eighty-Eight Miles; mesmerising Berlin duo Kathlen Morrison; electric party-starters Neckbreakers; and Manchester’s South By Zero.

Check out the showcase’s set times below.
