"Hey, what do you do?" / "Here's my business card" / "Will you listen to my band's demo" / "I haven't seen any bands yet, but I'm wasted" / "The queues are too long" / "Where's my hotel again?" / "Brighton is pretty". These are all phrases you probably heard during the last few days in Brighton. Why? Because The Great Escape was in town! A festival of 'delegates' and 'buzz bands'. Sadly the weather wasn't great, but it's a 'non-camping' festival, so no point in complaining, right?

Our 'proper' coverage will be on the site this week, but until then we've compiled this list of our 35 favourite Instagram photos from the event.
