The Great Escape festival announce The Hub and Mad

The Great Escape is going the distance this year to make your festival experience unforgettable, introducing the all new Hub area!

New to this year’s festival is the Hub, based at Jubilee Square right in the centre of Brighton. The Hub is an interactive space where you’ll be able to collect your prized wristbands, buy festival merchandise, as well as enjoy tons of live music, chill out with a drink, meet up with your friends and much more. Head to The Relentless Energy Drink truck stage, which will be programmed with live music all day, every day of TGE.

Wristband exchange will be open at the Hub from Wednesday 11th 5pm – 9pm, Thursday 12th 10am-9pm, Friday 13th 10am – 9pm and Saturday 14th 10am to 9pm.

The Great Escape and Brighton & Hove city council are proud to announce the second instalment of the Made In Brighton initiative which celebrates the many excellent creative types who reside in Brighton and Hove.  The initiative highlights the contribution local artists and speakers make to Europe’s largest festival for new music and why The Great Escape is proud to call Brighton it’s home.
