The Great Escape festival 2014 logo
Every year, The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, England, features over 400 emerging artists in about 35 venues throughout the city, making it comparable to our very own CMJ Music Marathon. Today they’ve announced the full line-up, and we’re pleased to see that a few CMJ Music Marathon alumni have made the cut. Just some of the artists who broke out at in 2013 who will now take their act across the Atlantic include Drowners, Courtney Barnett, LE1f, Claire, Mister Wives, Panama Wedding and Lizzo. The Great Escape takes place May 8-10 in Brighton.
