May event enters the digital sphere...

The Great Escape will move online in 2021.

The Brighton event is Europe's key new music showcase, and it has grown to take over virtually every available space in the city.

2020 provided more than its fair share of challenges, but the team entered the New Year by laying down some fresh dates.

Sadly, it has now been confirmed that 2021 will now be a digital event, with government legislation preventing The Great Escape from going ahead in its usual form.

Here's the full statement.

However, The Great Escape has already laid out its stall for 2021 - promising to be back next year, it will run between May 11th - 14th.
