The Great Escape has expanded its line-up with the exclusive TikTok Spotlight Show and a huge list of new artists.

The Great Escape is opening its doors in Brighton for its first festival in three years in just over a month now, and they’re keeping the hype going by putting yet more starry names on the slate.


The festival’s Spotlight Show is intended to shine a light on those artists who have rocketed to fame on TikTok, and bring them to in person audiences. Four artists have been selected for the prestigious spots this year, who you may very well know already: the line-up consists of rap sensation (and Brighton local) ArrDee, artist and dance star Dréya Mac, dynamic duo and very real couple Piri & Tommy, and pop provocateur Casayette.


As if that wasn’t enough, the main festival has also added a tranche of over 50 new artists to the line-up including Warmduscher, Hope Tala, ShaSimone, Dead Sara, PVA, and KUOKO, further filling out a slate that’s stacked full of big names across a variety of genres such as Alfie Templeman, Goat Girl and Yard Act.


Alice Rasack, Artists Partnership Manager at TikTok has commented, “We’re excited to partner with The Great Escape for the very first time and bring such breakthrough new musical talent to our Spotlight shows. ArrDee, Dréya Mac, Piri & Tommy, Cassyette and DJ Just Yaz have built huge fanbases on TikTok through their music and video creations and we can’t wait to see them perform live in Brighton.”


The Great Escape 2022 takes place in Brighton from 11-14 May, and you can still grab tickets here.
