Stop By Brighton on Your Way to Cannes

Stop By Brighton on Your Way to Cannes

I’m not attending the Cannes Film Festival for the first time in three years (I’m a little busy, you know, moving my life cross-country). But, if I was going to Cannes, you better believe I’d do my best to make a stop in Brighton, UK right before heading to the South of France. That’s because the annual Great Escape Music Festival is happening May 15-17. The lineup includes: The Wombats, Vampire Weekend, Okkervil River, Iron and Wine, Black Mountain, The Hold Steady, Lightspeed Champion, No Age, The Ting Tings, The Futureheads, and many more. It’s probably too late to re-route your trip through Europe, but if you find yourself in the UK, consider stopping by (and say hi to SXSW staffers Cary Caldwell and Charni Silk, who also work that fest). Or, just make the proper plans for next year’s Cannes. I think I might.
