The Great E-scape: Brighton festival The Great Escape will be held online this year

It's moving online.

The Great Escape will be held virtually for 2021.

The event is scheduled for mid-May, too early for the new COVID-19 guidelines that mean events like Reading & Leeds, Live At Leeds and 2000trees are still good to go.

“We can now confirm that The Great Escape 2021 will no longer be taking place in Brighton this year, however, we will be taking The Great Escape online for the first time,” organisers explain.

From 13th-14th May they will instead air artist performances, keynote speakers, panels, talks and debates online.

“We’ll be back next year in real life on 11th-14th May 2022 and as usual,” they add.
