During the festival’s two week period, many of the city’s venues feature a wide and varied mix of musical talent, ranging from genres like classical, world and contemporary to international jazz, electronica and folk, with many being free-to-the-public events.

This year’s line-up includes The Escher String Quartet, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Benjamin Grosvenor, Adriano Adewale, Valeriy Sokolov & Evgeniy Isotov, Tord Gustavsen Ensemble, Bath Philharmonia, Courtney Pine, the Brighton Early Music Festival Renaissance Players, Ashok Klouda, Bart Lafollette, Reinis Zarinš, John Myerscough, Ruth Jenkin and many more.
