UO X THE GREAT ESCAPE

Ladies and Gentlemen if we could have your attention please! We can officially announce we are a proud partner of The Great Escape festival wooooah! What does this mean exactly? Well, let us explain all the UO things you’ll be able to see if you’re making your way down to Brighton this coming weekend.

We are taking over Komedia on Thursday 16th May

UO X THE GREAT ESCAPE

Located on Brighton’s Gardner Street, UO will be making party in the downstairs room of this awesome location on the first day of all The Great Escape activities. Treat it your first evening blow-out for all you wristband holders. As well as our usual takeover techniques (decorating the place to make it look totally Urban), the evening’s entertainment will be supplied by no other than Blaudzun, Thumpers, Is Tropical and The Skints. If you’re serious about new music and even more serious about getting a party going on, you’re welcome/invited/advised to come and get crazy with us…

Here’s the music you’ll dancing along to…

Is Tropical



Thumpers



Blaudzun



We’ve teamed up with The Great Escape to host a live gig from Thumpers in our Brighton store!

UO X THE GREAT ESCAPE

Damn straight! Feel-good alt pop duo Thumpers will be gracing the stage inside our very own Urban Outfitters Brighton late Friday evening. This isn’t the first time we’ve had bands in store at Brighton, and the gigs always go down smooth like cold festival beer, and ya wanna know the best thing? You don’t even need a wristband to get inside! Nah mate, it’s open for all to see, so those unlucky peeps who didn’t manage to grab a ticket in time, you can come make party with all the gang at UO Brighton.

Here’s more thumpers to get vibes…
