Artist registration for The Great Escape 2020 is now officially open in partnership with Sentric Music.

Applications are open to bands, singer-songwriters, rappers, DJs, collectives or duos across all genres to play the festival, which is based in Brighton and renowned for breaking new talent.

The festival takes place from 13 to 16 May where the seaside setting will host more than 450 acts across 35 venues.

The event is also a great opportunity for emerging artists to meet key industry music figures who attend the festival looking for the next big thing.

Performers at last year’s festival included Foals, Lewis Capaldi, AJ Tracey, Black Midi, Little Simz, James Bay and Snapped Ankles.

All submissions will be reviewed by The Great Escape’s bookings team and chosen artists will be contacted over the coming months.
