Check out all the action...

Brighton's new music extravaganza The Great Escape is now under way.

The starting pistol was fired sometime yesterday - May 9th - with the south coast city playing host to 100s of shows.

Clash photographer Lauren McDermott was in the front line, partying to Australian wonders Confidence Man.

Meeting up with Easy Life and the highly rated Emerson, she then caught performances by Lauran Hibberd and Safe To Swin.
