Poland Making Waves At The Great Escape

Festival Crowd Header

Poland is this year’s lead international feature at the Great Escape, the top music festival in the U.K., with eight artists and bands from Poland playing in Brighton in mid May

Polish artists performing at the event span the hottest young talents on the scene: très.b, Brodka, Kamp!, Daniel Drumz, Teielte, Pictorial Candi, Enchanted Hunters and THE KDMS.

The  showcase of Polish music has been organised by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, in close collaboration with the Great Escape, and it forms part of the Institute’s ongoing programme for the promotion of new Polish music under the headline Don’t Panic! We’re From Poland.

As Europe’s leading festival for new music, the Great Escape takes pride in enabling a handpicked selection of new artists to perform in front of incredibly varied, influential audiences. Poland has had a strong presence at the festival since 2008 with a wide variety of exciting artists including Paula & Karol, Novika and the Lovefinders and Bueno Bros performing for festival goers and key industry peers. The years of cooperation between the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the Great Escape now bear fruit, and the Poland is the festival’s major international focus and a special guest at the event, while the Adam Mickiewicz Institute is the festival’s main international partner.

très.b, Brodka, Kamp!, Daniel Drumz, Teielte, Pictorial Candi, Enchanted Hunters and THE KDMS will perform individual concerts, and some of them also play as part of the Don’t Panic! We’re From Poland showcase. The concerts are accompanied by discussion panels for specialists working in the music industry.
