The Great Escape Present Their ‘First Fifty’ Artists & London Showcase Events

The Great Escape 2018 was quite a draw for Brighton’s muso crowd, so now that 2019’s festival has been confirmed, the organisers have set about creating somewhat of a teaser, with their First Fifty series of events.

The series of gigs, set to take place around various London venues, exposes new artists, and celebrates the announcement of The Great Escape‘s 2019 festival. First Fifty takes place between November 27th-29th, 2018.

The announcement of the First Fifty line-up is a testament to their dedication in giving emerging artists a voice, as well as a knack for picking promising up-and-comers, as a quick scan through the confirmed artists reads like a who’s-who of names that are literally about to go BANG.
