The Great Escape

Showcasing Scotland at The Great Escape 2018 - animated banner

The Great Escape is one of the most important platforms for new music in the world, with the festival and convention attracting over 3,500 key industry figures on the look-out for new talent.

At The Great Escape Festival 2018 (17-19 May) Creative Scotland supported nine top Scottish acts to perform at two Showcasing Scotland concerts.

What’s most impressive about The Great Escape 2018’s Scottish contingent isn’t just the quality – though Bossy Love, Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5, Declan Welsh & The Decadent West, Happy Meals, LUCIA, Rascalton, The Ninth Wave, The Spook School and The Vegan Leather and are all fantastic – but the sheer diversity of sounds and styles on offer.
