Great Escape 2012
Since being founded in 2006, The Great Escape has been firmly established internationally as the leading event for showcasing new music.
Taking place in Brighton over 3 days in May, The Great Escape kicks starts the festival season, introducing 15,000 music lovers to the key artists and sounds of the year. With over 300 bands playing in 30 venues over 3 days, The Great Escape is the key date in the music calendar.
In addition to pre-publicised performances, impromptu street gigs spring up all over town. The Alternative Escape, numerous club nights, label parties, industry showcases, unique collaborations and outdoor gigs all add to the festivities.
Firefly are invited back as part of the production team for the 2012 event and will supply a combination of low energy lighting and a super punchy loudspeaker PA system for the Hub Stage, Jubilee Square.(Launched in 2011 The Hub is based in the centre of Brighton at Jubilee Square and is the first TGE venue all 12,000 festival goers visit in order to collect their wristbands. From then on it becomes a great meeting place throughout the festival.)
