If you’re in the UK music industry and would like to connect with Indonesia, with its massive and vibrant music scene and its enthusiasm for British bands, come and find us at The Great Escape music festival in Brighton, UK or get in touch beforehand.
We are inviting a music industry delegation to represent Indonesia at The Great Escape to open up a pathway to music collaboration between Indonesian and UK artists. The delegation come from various backgrounds that include music promoters, festival programmers, media, musicians and artists.
The Great Escape is a major three-day festival of new music, showcasing 450 emerging artists from all over the world in over 30 walkable venues across the city. The festival has become a monumental platform for discovering new artists, with headline artist line-ups such as Oh Wonder, Band of Skulls, Craig David and Mystery Jets.
