  • Best Of The Year (January - June 2017)

    2017 Mid-Year Review Best Of The Year (January - June 2017) 2017 has certainly gotten off to a flying start! It’s hard to believe we’re only halfway through with all that has happened so far, although it is hard not to notice that it’s summer with all of this amazing weather we are having: I’ve never known it to be so hot. It has been a big year for Brightonsfinest so far too, having finally made the sensible and necessary step of moving our offices from Hove to the heart of Brighton’s bustling North Laine. At the same time we launched our own
  • The Great Escape Festival 2017 - 18th-20th May 2017

    The Great Escape Festival 2017 -  18th-20th May 2017 The Great Escape Festival 2017 -  18th-20th May 2017 Another year, and another huge comedown after the exhilaration of three days of heady music, heavy bodily abuse, and heaving bodies. It’s kind of the same as a festival in a field, minus the camping, and the mud. There are more than 450 performances on over 30 stages, played out to an overall audience of 20,000. Like a traditional festival, there is plenty of schlepping from one stage to the next, re-fuelling at various points, staying up too late and getting up too early. Crucially though, almost everyone is here to actually watch and listen to music, and everyone has a real...
  • The Big Moon - The Haunt - 20th April 2017

    The Big Moon - The Haunt - 20th April 2017 The Big Moon - The Haunt - 20th April 2017 The Big Moon arrived in Brighton for the first night of their UK headline tour and showed exactly why they have been hailed as the next great British band with an electrified display at The Haunt. The hype behind this group has been building steadily over the last year or so, and this month’s release of their debut album Love in the 4th Dimension has elevated it even further with a series of five-star reviews and a string of superlatives laid at their feet. Judging by this sensational performance, The Big Moon are now ready and waiting to justify all those hopes and expectations and sweep all before them.
  • The Big Moon – Interview – 2017

    The Big Moon – Interview – 2017 The Big Moon – Interview – 2017 There were doubters. There probably still are. But anyone with an iota of musical appreciation should acknowledge that in Juliette Jackson, we have found a rare gem. A shining star who just knows how to write naturally, space and dynamic thrust at the fore, as a songwriter and a lyricist. Already universally acclaimed, Love In The 4th Dimension is a stunning debut album from the London/Brighton four-piece. Last year they played The Great Escape with two big shows and will be back on 20th April for a headline show. Jackson took time out from a bit of down time with her boyfriend in Rotterdam to talk SXSW, discovering guitar music, learning to write songs and being a waitress in a cocktail bar…

  • The Great Escape - 2016

    The Great Escape 2016 The Great Escape - 2016 Some Brighton Festival and Fringe and media types have over the years bemoaned the fact that The Great Escape (TGE) happens slap bang in the middle of the May festivities. It means that the on-going celebration of the arts is partially halted in its tracks while the new music juggernaut arrives in convoy from around the globe, taking over many of the city's venues and a few of its streets for three very long days. What it does however is perfectly compliment the sense of occasion. Yes, the festival programs a small number of excellent ‘contemporary’ shows, but in general it and the fringe are far more geared towards theatre, comedy, spoken word and ‘performance’. Like the concurrent Artists Open Houses, TGE is a distinct strand that is the veritable icing on the...
