The next UK landmark event has announced that it won’t be going ahead this year. The Great Escape, which traditionally takes place in May in Brighton is going to postpone its 15th anniversary edition to next year.
A statement from promoter Mama Festivals/Live Nation states that the decision was not taking lightly, but given that “we are only a few weeks out from the event, and the current status of things, the was the best decision for fans, artists, staff and the community.”
The statement assures that The Great Escape all be back May 12-15 next year “for a belated 15th year.”
Tickets remain valid for next year’s edition or can be refunded.
