The Great Escape is without a doubt one of the UK’s foremost musical showcases. Loaded with panels, conferences, networking events and of course live music, those four days in May are consistently some of the most anticipated in the industry’s calendar.

Over the course of this year’s festival, over 400 up-and-coming and more established artists took to stages across Brighton to play to eager punters and industry reps alike. Among these acts was SIPHO., the multi-genre artist who has quickly become one of the UK’s most exciting new artists.
