M at The Great Escape 2017

M TGE 2017

As you may know, from Thursday 17 May until Saturday 20 May, the music industry will descend on the seaside town of Brighton for three action packed days of gigs, conferencing and much, much more.

Our team will be getting in the thick of it over the course of the three days making sure you’re first in the know when it comes to the latest debate and live outings from the best new artists.

We’ll be profiling some of the bands and performers, filming gigs and reporting on the hottest industry news to emerge from the panels.

Some highlights will include the PRS for Music, PRS Foundation and PPL panel with Marika Hackman on how to evolve as an artist at the Old Courtroom on Friday 19 May.

After the panel from 3pm, you can meet representatives from all three organisations at a drinks networking party at MyHotel.

On Saturday 20 May, we’re also excited to be checking out the PRS Foundation’s International Showcase Fund live event at Komedia featuring some of their recently backed artists, including Be Charlotte, Alice Jemima, Sarathy Korwar and Flamingods.

The latter will also be taking over our Instagram account from 9.30am on Thursday 17 for 24 hours so look out for exclusive behind-the-scenes snaps from them.

You’ll be able to stay abreast of our Great Escape movements by following us across our various channels and searching for the #TGE17 hashtag.
