The Great Escape 2013 takes place across more than 30 venues in Brighton, with 350 acts performing from 16-18 May to over 16,000 music lovers. This year's Great Escape will feature the brilliant Bastille.
For someone yet to release his first album, Dan Smith, the creative force behind Bastille, has already had a good taste of fame. With the band, he's played a sold-out gig at London’s 1500-capacity KOKO, sold out two UK tours as well as headlined festivals. There’s two sold-out shows at Shepherds Bush Empire yet to come and another sold out UK tour. And they've got an army of fans hanging on his every word, covering songs and waiting for that debut with baited breath.
