Our Company

Great Escape Events.

Great Escape festival is Tasmania’s newest and most exciting outdoor music and arts event. Founded in 2021 by prominent Tasmanian band Chase City, GEE wanted to provide much needed stimulus into a struggling local arts sector at a particularly difficult time (Covid 19).

Launching Great Escape was a courageous and exciting decision motivated by a desire to create an outlet for upcoming artists to perform and develop alongside internationally recognised performers. Following its success in 2021, Great Escape Events are keen to establish the festival as an annual event that brings world class music and arts to Tasmanian residents and attracts tourists from across Australia and beyond.

The Mentorship Program

Great Escape Events is excited to launch our mentorship program for the 2022 event. As local artists, we have a passion for Tasmanian music and want to do our part in heightening the local music scene. As such, we will be choosing 2 artists to help them take the next step in their musical journey!

We understand how expensive & resource heavy putting out music is in 2021, and how daunting it can be if you don’t know the steps to follow or have the right industry contacts. That is why we plan to cover the costs of a full single release cycle for our chosen artists. This will begin by securing the act studio time to record and produce a brand new single; followed by filming and editing a music video to accompany the release. Following that we will be offering live performance mentoring sessions to help level up your live show, and lastly, the chance to play on the main stage at Great Escape 2022.
