Great Escape Brighton

The Great Escape Brighton

Love Thy Neighbour’s free entry unofficial Great Escape shows return! We’re super excited with this year’s line up, bringing you some great bands from across the festival all for free, no wristbands needed!

This year we’re doing two venues across all three days of the festival, The Hope & Ruin (ground floor bar area) & Fiddler’s Elbow. See full listings and timings below!

Thursday @ The Hope:
2.30pm – Naima Bock: London based artist Naima Bock spent her early childhood in Sao Paulo, Brazil with her Greek/English mother and Brazilian father.  Former bassist in Goat Girl, she was last in Brighton supporting Dana Gavanski.
3.30pm – Mumble Tide: Mumble Tide are a Bristol duo-come-couple who met through Gumtree. They throw together the 90s guitar-hooks of their childhood, Leonard’s sugar-sweet vo-cals and rainbow road-esque synths
4.30pm – Lime Garden: Brighton-based Lime Garden are a four-piece band jumping over genre boundaries to create a sound that is uplifting yet somehow laid-back.
Break 5pm – 6.30pm
6.30pm – DITZ: “The English punks’ debut is a rage-forward bulldozer of poetic wordplay and experimental hardcore.” Pitchfork
7.30pm – Byker Grove Fan Club: Post Macho Noise Pop trio “The Byker Grove Fan Club” Channel their fury via angular guitars, muscular rhythms, and sardonic vocals dripping with bile and malice.
8.30pm  – GROVE: Melding together elements of punk-infused dancehall, jungle, bass and pop, Grove is a Bristol-based producer, vocalist and DJ with a constantly morphing sound.
9.30pm – Joe & The Shitboys: The bisexual vegans, Joe & The Shitboys, punch with brief and catchy shitpunk songs. This band was formed with the intention of calling out shitty behavior in the conservative Faroe Islands.

Thursday @ Fiddler’s Elbow:
11.30pm – Panic Shack: Welsh five-piece punk band delivering barbed takedowns of societal failings with a keen sense of identity, wit and melody.
12.20am – DITZ: The English punks’ debut is a rage-forward bulldozer of poetic wordplay, experimental hardcore and forward-thinking post-punk.
1.10am – Enola Gay: Belfast post-punk/noise rock bring their aggressive and exhilarating set to a little Irish pub in the early hours.

Friday @ The Hope:
2.30pm – Kills Birds: American rock band Kills Birds approach their songs with an intensity that’s so tangible it feels like the stakes are near life and death
3.30pm – ME REX: South London’s ME REX began life in 2018 in the home of songwriter Myles McCabe experimenting with shouty, electronic bedroom pop.
4.30pm – Illuminati Hotties: Tenderpunk pioneer Sarah Tudzin mixes poignant writing and irreverent humor, the US based band are one LTN have been trying to book for a few years now.
Break 5pm – 6.30pm
6.30pm – Divorce: Nottingham 4 piece Divorce is a new alt-country and grunge-fuelled project who released their debut single Services in early 2022.
7.30pm – Party Dozen: A duo from Sydney made up of Kirsty Tickle (saxophone) and Jonathan Boulet (percussion and sampler). They have become renowned in Australia for their incendiary live shows, touring and playing with acts such as LIARS, Tropical Fuck Storm and Viagra Boys
8.30pm – Tallies: Two years after the release of their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album, Toronto-based indie pop outfit TALLIES return with their new music released via the excellent Bella Union label.
9.30pm – Ducks Ltd: Toronto’s Ducks Ltd., are a the bright jangle-pop duo of Tom McGreevy and Evan Lewis (guitar, bass, drum programming). The pair craft songs that play to very specific inspirations without drowning underneath them, bookish indie fans look no further.

Friday @ Fiddler’s Elbow:
11.30pm – HUSSY: South London singer/songwriter/producer Sophie Nicole Ellison – a.k.a Hussy – dealing in lo-fi indie-pop, complete with dreamy vocal harmonies and layers of reverb-drenched guitars.
12.20am – Loose Articles: Melodic post-punk quartet from Manchester, specialising in discord, repetition, radical politics and bathing in Stella Artois.
1.10am – Eades: If Andy Gill had a love child with Lou Reed, and that child became friends with David Byrne and he and David Byrne made a lo-fi side project, something like that.

 

Saturday @ The Hope:
2.30pm – SUEP: London-based SUEP feature members of Porridge Radio and make delicious, off-kilter indie pop music.
3.30pm – Regressive Left: With influences ranging from the cyclical rhythms of EBM to the freedom and expression of the London Jazz scene, the band have been compared to everything from Post Punk heavyweights Talking Heads and Devo to modern art-rockers Squid and EBM outfit Scalping.
4.30pm – Gus Englehorn: Before Montreal singer-songwriter Gus Englehorn was signed to Secret City Records he lived in a cabin in the woods and wrote Dungeon Master, the cutest, heaviest, strangest rock’n’roll record you will hear this year.
Break 5pm – 6.30pm
6.30pm – Home Counties: Home Counties combine angular guitar work with furious percussion. The 5-piece make melodically rigid, socially-charged anthems that are lyrically tongue-in-cheek and scathingly satirical.
7.30pm – Ciel: With its members originating from The Netherlands, Spain and the UK, the indie-rock three piece CIEL ultimately met on the South Coast of England where they distilled their differing backgrounds and influences into grunge-pop finery.
8.30pm – Blood Wizard: Drawing similarities to the narrative led by murmurings of Kurt Vile as well as the unpredictability of Crack Cloud, it’s less about fitting in for Burns and more about developing a world, where the mystique and sheer eccentricity of Blood Wizard can be fully let loose.
9.30pm – Personal Trainer: Personal Trainer balances between a spontaneous and fun interaction between musicians being thrown together on a stage without having rehearsed too much, and playing well composed catchy and noisy pop songs with a rock attitude

Saturday @ Fiddler’s Elbow:
10.10pm – The Dream Machine: Only 2 singles in but have seen support from Steve Lamaqc and Tim Burgess already.
11pm – Butch Kassidy: Butch Kassidy are an experimental band out of the UK who have been gaining some traction thanks to some immersive live performances and crafting challenging and exciting post-rock compositions such as their debut offering “Heath.”
11.50pm – ĠENN: A musical riot – trans-national, genre-blending, musical riot, ready to rock your ears and mess with your brain.
12.40am – Lambrini Girls: Brazen powerhouse punk, revelling in trashed out energy and scathing guitars one fizzy pink bottle at a time.
1.30am – Langkamer: The ugliest men in Bristol close our stage with their combination of indie rock, quirky country and blues, laid-back guitar riffs and a DIY twang.
