Celeste at Coalition, Thursday at 8.30PM

If you love Frank Ocean and Amy Winehouse you’re gonna love Celeste and her unique and soft voice! She’s only 24 years old, but her songs are so mature and settled you’ll be wondering how that’s even possible! Check out her songs on Youtube and I bet you’ll like it!

Girl in red at Komedia, Friday at 8.15PM

Marie aka Girl in red is probably one of my favorite female artists at the Great Escape, not only is she super young with her 19 years of age, but also because she’s openly gay and sings about pretty girls all the time, she’s just so lovely you definitely need to check out her song ‘Girls‘ and come see her live! She really quickly developed a career off of Soundcloud and Youtube and is now coming all the way from Norway to be in Brighton!
