If DiS covers Great Escape, I hope you'll be straight about what a pitiful debacle it was. Thank God for ATP, else we'd've been stuck there. Ask anyone - punters, local organisers, bands, taxi driviers - it was a fucking mess. Shame on the Barfly, leave Brighton alone in future, you're not welcome - BrightonLive happens annually and pisses on this coked up industry schmooze.
Example: the local journo dancing to Kooks, who was elbowed in the back by a delegate who said "oi this is an industry showcased, it's not for fans."
