HOT VOX is proud to be returning for yet another year to Alternative Escape, which runs alongside Brighton’s historic Great Escape Festival showcasing some of the most exciting national and international talent. On Saturday 20th May, HOT VOX have handpicked some of the greatest acts on the emerging artist scene.

First up is VALAIRE, who escaped the harsh Montreal winter in search of someplace much warmer to lay down roots. They ended up in Louisiana where they were surrounded by funk, jazz, and everything that grooves. For VALAIRE, the music is the sound of freedom and happiness.

Following VALAIRE we have the sweet, sweet soulman from Hackney: Albert Gold. Albert has released a handful of terrifically melodic singles citing influences as diverse as Luther Vandross, John Legend, Stevie Wonder , Cee-Lo Green and Otis Redding.

Next is South Coast Band Wild Front, who pair the unrestrained emotions of music with the capricious nature of life. Although 80’s rock and alternative indie is a love they all share, their primary musical influences are so different. It’s an exotic mix that creates their unique and distinctive sound.

Following Wild Front we present Duke of Wolves. a little bit Queens Of The Stone Age, a little bit Rage Against The Machine and a little bit Muse while stamping their own melodic take on alternative rock music. They combine hard‐hitting riffs, huge choruses, and melodies that’ll follow you all the way home.

Last but by no means least will be YUNGBLUD aka Dominic Harrison - 19 year old from Doncaster, England has been surrounded by music all his life. Despite his teenage years, Dom’s lyrics are zeitgeisty, punchy and full of passion for the struggle of his own generation.
