Check out the action from this year’s The Great Escape Festival in Brighton.

It’s that time of year again when hundreds of artists descend on the cultural hub that is Brighton for the UK’s largest musical showcase. This year sees spotlight shows from Slaves, Rag’N’Bone Man, and Kano, with a seriously huge amount of exciting talent spread across a multitude of the city’s venues.

Every year, Brighton becomes a vibrant mecca of creativity, above and beyond the bands on the line-up. We’ll be reporting from inside the showcases and out in the streets, giving those away from the festival all the important happenings, and those at the festival some ideas of where to head next.

Let us know what you’ve been up to, and some of the bands we should check out, on Twitter and in the comments below.
