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).
Brightonsfinest Volume 2 is the second album in a new series of compilations released on the Brightonsfinest Presents record label. Whereas Volume 1 was dedicated to artists who were very closely associated with the city of Brighton, Volume 2 features newest and best emerging artists to come from the UK – all who have been reviewed on the Brightonsfinest publication, or interviewed on the Brightonsfinest Radio Show. This compilation is now available as a double-vinyl record and digital release, featuring 21 tracks (see bellow) of the most prominent and exciting bands from 2017. Find out more and buy it here.
