Ahead of her performance at this year’s The Great Escape, we caught up with BEA1991 to find out what makes her tick…

It’s officially the week of The Great Escape, and we can’t wait to kick things off at the official launch party on Brighton beach on Wednesday evening.

Living between London, New York and Amsterdam, BEA1991 has worked with the likes of NUXXE affiliate Sega Bodega and Blood Orange. With a honeyed tone to her vocal and futuristic electronic production, her sound will appeal to fans of the likes of Smerz and Kelly Lee Owens.



As well as a musician, BEA1991 is a multi-disciplinary artist who has, over the past couple of years, been exhibiting her work. It’s an artist flair that’s evident in her experimental live performances too. “You cannot tell me to be different than what I am”, she says confidently in 2018 single ‘Wdsg?’ (below). Fiercely independent and honing in on a unique trajectory, BEA1991 is, in her own words, “emotional intelligence & yacht pop”.

You can catch BEA1991 at The Great Escape on Friday 10th May at 7.15pm at SHOOSH, down by the seafront.

And don’t miss the Dutch Impact party at Komedia, also on the Friday:

12:15 – The Visual
13:15 – Lewsberg
14:15 – EUT
15:15 – Fata Boom
