Brightonsfinest Alternative Escape Showcase 2018 – photo and video highlights

For the fourth year in a row, Brightonsfinest hosted an Alternative Escape Showcase at The Great Escape Festival, this time taking place at the breathtakingly beautiful St Mary’s Church on Saturday 19th May. Forget the Royal Wedding, forget the FA Cup final – this year we had the pleasure of having some of our favourite musicians perform at what boasted to be our best and biggest annual event yet. We had ten fantastic emerging as well as established acts from Brighton and further afield which included; The Fiction Aisle, Wild Front, Her’s, FUR, Trudy & The Romance, Thyla, Dog In The Snow, Charles Watson and SJ Brett. Our special headliner this year was a stunning set from Brighton’s Phoria who were not only playing for the first time this year, but showcased their new material for the first time.  Take a look at the photo highlights below (taken by Jonski Mason and Ben Walker).
