The store is subject to the latest Welsh Government COVID-19 restrictions, with limited store numbers, hand sanitiser made regularly available, masks and social distancing to be observed and equipment regularly cleaned.
Chief Vision Officer, Adam Gore says, “Escape Records is about bringing people together through music and to improve all lives. We want to do something different to make sure we’re not just another event promoter or label. Our pop-up experience is the next step in letting everyone know the people behind the smile and the team is looking forward to meeting everyone.”
Escape Records officially launched on 17th May with the official launch party taking place later this month, subject to all restrictions being lifted. The Escape team has undoubtedly established themselves as the leading event promoters in Wales over recent years, launching and firmly establishing four festivals across the country; Inside Out, Colour Clash, Party at The Park and Escape, each with capacities ranging from 5000 to 20000 people, with a huge new game-changing festival all set to be unveiled soon.
The collective has always strived to surround themselves and work with an array of amazing and creative people that are the heartbeat of what the brand stands for. Escape Records was very much a vision for the future, but after the enforced 2020 fallow year because of the pandemic, it now takes centre stage, as bold new challenges await whilst the team work on some very special new projects to be announced very soon.
Mark Hopkins, Director of Escape Records adds, “Our mantra is trust and love the process. This means we’ve had an incredible ride, with many knocks along the way, but we have learned from them all and improved each time and are now ready to take things to the next level. When this journey began, it was based in music and partying and the wider cultural impact in truth was not at the forefront of our minds.”
Fast forward 15 years and sadly the carefree attitude of youth is starting to escape us, but this space is now filled with a more meaningful purpose. The creation of our academy to support and bring through the next generation of music talent in South Wales, our range of charitable and project work most recently supporting the building of a home in Cambodia. Giving back in all its forms to our community, the industry further afield and making sure we embody that in all that we do.”
