“The Stick Up” screen printed gig-poster show launches this year, a colourful new addition to Brighton’s “The Great Escape” festival roster. Invites were sent to top, contemporary print studios all over Europe (next year ‘the world!’) and the tubes returned have yielded an explosion of brilliant posters – some slick, some crass and irreverent, others are soft and cute. All have been commissioned by an eclectic range of bands and will be on display on a trail that weaves through various busy venues in the city.
The majority will be available for keeps, so be sure to head to The Stick Up Shop (AKA Super Super, 7 Kings Rd. BN1 1NE, next to the Queens Hotel by the sea) and take home some limited edition, hand-printed concert memorabilia.
Launches on the Thursday 16th of May and runs through Friday 17th, Saturday 18th
+ “Post Festival Extra” Sunday 19th !
