With no write up in The Great Escape programme I took a punt on Crewel Intentions at The Haunt. Curiously the place was packed for this band which was first onto stage that evening. This is Palma Violets’ Chilli Jesson's second band.
Brian Christinzio apparently had the honour of being deported from the UK in 2015 - but he's back in Manchester (when not in Brighton!). This was the launch of songs from his new album.
At the Fender stage at Patterns played the impressive Hattie Briggs - an appearance no doubt something to do with her being named Fender Undiscovered Artist of the Year 2017.
The indie band Pale Waves play at the Wagner Hall venue on the first day of The Great Escape Festival 2018.
