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.

Great Escape 2021.

The inaugural Great Escape festival was held on April 10, 2021. The event was put together in three months following the Tasmanian Government’s easing of COVID-19 restrictions, which allowed outdoor music events to thrive once again. Open to 800 patrons, and offered as an overnight camping festival headlined by two of Australia’s hottest upcoming acts – The Vanns and Bugs (Featured in Triple J’s Hottest 100 and 200), the event was a sell-out and injected $120,000 into the Australian music and entertainment sector.

Held at the foot of Mount Field National Park in the beautiful Derwent Valley -approximately 45 minutes from Hobart – patrons arrived at the picturesque location ready for an exciting and action packed festival that delivered on all fronts – Great music, Stunning location, Relaxed, Friendly vibe, Delicious local produce, and Affordable drinks.
