The Road to Great Escape announces full schedule


Ahead of its 2023 return and after selling-out its two-day passes, the full schedule for each of the four Dublin venues has been announced for The Road To The Great Escape. The two-day festival is taking place on Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th May 2023 in across Whelan’s, Grand Social, Workman’s Club, and Academy 2.

Venue tickets €15.90 including booking fees on sale today Friday 17th February at 10AM

Additions to the line-up include Canadian singer Cate, gothic post-rock Londoner Heartworms, multi-platinum selling songwriter RØRY, party animals Fat Dog, RCA signee Isabel Larosa, YouTuber Hannah Grae and Scottish folk artist Rianne Downey, as well as an Irish contingent including Khakikid, Spider, and SIIGHTS (pictured above).

They join a line-up that already included electro-pop duo 49th & Main, new-age Dublin songwriter Sammy Copley, Belfast-based outfit Chalk and Sorcha Richardson, fresh from the release of her second album Smiling Like An Idiot.

Sottish singer-songwriter Katie Gregson-MacLeod will also make an appearance over the two days, following the viral success of her track ‘Complex’ and the recent release of her debut EP songs written for piano, which saw her featured in The New York Times and across the BBC. Minneapolis songwriter Ber, who generates over 1.6 million monthly Spotify listeners with tracks such as ‘Meant To Be’ and ‘I’m Not In Love’, is also set to play.
