Festival Crowd Header

The Great Escape is excited to announce that Radio X will be partnering with the festival for the first time this year, presenting 20 Years of X-Posure playing host to a massive performance from Friendly Fires

A day of showcases from emerging artists including Hælos, Georgia, Snapped Ankles + more, at Brighton’s iconic beach site, The Deep End on Friday 10 May. The show will celebrate 20 years of X-Posure, the much-loved new music show presented by John Kennedy on Radio X.

From their first showcase at The Great Escape eleven years ago in 2008, to their second performance at the globally celebrated Brighton festival in 2011, indie icons Friendly Fires return to The Great Escape for another show stopping performance with Radio X on the beach. After their triumphant return in 2018 and with their highly anticipated third album due later this year, the show is set to be huge.

The Great Escape, the festival for new music, will be kicking off festival season by playing host to over 450 up and coming artists and a music-led conference across 35 walkable venues from 8-11 May 2019 in Brighton, England
