In a recent meeting with Brighton City Council, they described to us how they have plans to turn the city into a creative force within the UK, even taking measures such as employing graffiti artists to 'urbanise' strategic areas, as well as cater heavily to the tech world and creative arts.
Now you'll see skate parks, more live music venues and recording studios throughout the town. It's love affair with 'the creatives' seems to be paying off, businesses like Disney now have locations in Brighton and new modern structures such as the Brighton i360 is sure to attract more.
Be warned, accommodation doesn't come cheap, in fact it is comparable to London in some areas. Room rentals have become very popular for this reason, and whether you want to rent a room in Brighton or take a 35 minute train ride and rent a room in Eastbourne, you'll need to get your deposit ready because there's a lot of competition.
As London prices continue to rise we see over-spill into Brighton, bringing with it lots of musicians who seeks the beach life. The natural over-spill from Brighton is Eastbourne, which also has a growing musician community.
London is still the prime location for musicians (of course) but it's nice to know that if you get tired of the smoke you can head South to the coast and still have plenty of outlets for your music career!
