Kernow bands' Great Escape

May 9, 2013


FOR the third year running, Cornwall will be represented at international new music festival, The Great Escape in Brighton on Wednesday. Two of our best bands will feature on the South East x South West Stage at the unique Prince Albert venue. Goodbye Joel, pictured, from Lostwithiel and St Austell, have jumped into the Cornwall music scene fully formed and ready to go, playing a set that blends elements of ambient, post-rock, and indie music to create a unique sound. Their energetic live performance, taking influence from the likes of The Arcade Fire and Sigur Ros, has seen Goodbye Joel become one of the best bands Cornwall has produced in a long time.

The PJP Band, from Launceston and Plymouth, will be headlining in Brighton while touring their new acclaimed album, And So It Goes.

Organisers would like to thank The Godolphin Arms, Marazion and the Cornwall Music Forum for their support of this event, which has become a much-loved opener to The Great Escape Festival. Past reviews of the showcase have been enthusiastic but with such a high standard of music and free Philps Pasties, 2013 is set to be the best year yet.
