After a three year hiatus, The Great Escape Festival closed with a bang after making its triumphant return.

The festival that showcases new music pulled out all the stops as it kicked off this year’s festival season, featuring incredible performances from some of the hottest new acts and most exciting emerging artists, wrapping up The Great Escape’s biggest line-up yet with more than 500 artists performing across three days.

TikTok presented a line-up of viral sensations at Concorde 2 for one of the festival’s highly anticipated Spotlight shows. Local lad and all-round cheeky chappy ArrDee headlined the stage for a homecoming show, demonstrating why he is one of the most in-demand names in the UK’s hip-hop scene with his energetic, irrepressible flow.

From the moment the festival-goers started descending on Brighton, the excitement surrounding the festival’s return has been plain to see throughout a weekend packed with unforgettable moments.
