In just under three weeks time, festival-goers and new music enthusiasts will be heading down to Brighton for The Great Escape, showcasing artists from across all genres and styles and a vast number of countries across Europe and the rest of the world.
Now in it’s twelfth year, the festival is as expected bigger and better than ever which is highlighted clearly in their ‘Spotlight Shows’. UK Punk duo Slaves are hosting their own party on Brighton’s famous Pier while man of the moment Rag ‘N’ Bone Man will be playing The Dome Concert Hall, one of Brighton’s biggest venues. It was announced this morning that grime trailblazer Kano will be headlining the final Spotlight Show, but he is far from alone. Kano, who’s album ‘Made in The Manor’ won best album at the MOBO awards last year, will be joined by a number of friends including Little Simz, Ghetts, Kojo Funds, DJ Maximum and DJ’s Elijah and Skilliam.

The show will take place on Friday May 19th at The Old Market and speaking prior to the show Kano told The Great Escape, “I can’t wait to get back onstage with my band, and what makes it even more exciting is that I got some friends with me. And they just so happen to be some of the best in the game today.”
