DISPOSABLE DIARIES #4 – THE GREAT ESCAPE

May 13, 2014

While the rest of the world collectively attempted to Sherlock Holmes why Solange would K.O. Jay-Z in a lift – we made a beeline for Brighton to take in a friendlier atmosphere at The Great Escape festival.

If you’ve ever heard TGE dubbed as Blighty’s answer to SXSW, you’ve heard wrong. SXSW doesn’t own 823mph winds and a Sea Life Centre like a bawse, ok? It does however showcase around 5 billion* new acts everyone will be stepping over their BFF/nan/child to see at Glastonbury next year.

Give this year’s roster a spin on the playlist above and take a look at our adventures in around the sweat-soaked floors of Brighton’s most treasured music venues.

*possible overestimation.
