From 18 until 20 May 2017, the twelfth edition of The Great Escape, the biggest showcase festival of the UK, will take place in Brighton. In the course of three days, several hundred bands will play in the clubs and venues of Brighton.
Belgian bands selected for this year’s showcase programme are: Baloji, J. Bernardt, Goose, La Jungle, Raketkanon, Témé Tan and Tsar B. In addition to the numerous concerts, also the conference part of the festival is a real magnet for lots of music professionals. Several network initiatives, debates and panels will be organised, discussing the current and future state of the music industry.
Kunstenpunt/Flanders Arts Institute will again be present to support the Belgian bands that are selected for the showcase programme with a Belgium Booms campaign. Belgium Booms is a collaboration between Flanders Arts Institute/Kunstenpunt and Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques, with the support of SABAM for Culture.
