The Great Escape has announced the first batch of names to be added to its 2018 line-up, with each to one play its ‘First Fifty’ London based warm up event in November.

The three-day showcase takes place across five London venues from 21st – 23rd November. Artists include Bad Gyal (pictured) KOPS, Ten Tonnes, Promiseland and Sports Team.

Mama Festivals CEO Rory Bett said: “It feels great to be announcing fifty amazing artists to play TGE18 and to launch the show with its very own festival yet again. This is a really exciting time for new music and we’re fortunate to be able to showcase some of the greatest new talent from around the world. Since TGE started 13 years ago, we have always maintained that the foremost objective of the festival is to produce an international programme that is genuinely representative of the full range of emerging talent in music. This is such a really good start and look out for lots more to come from across all music genres”.

The Great Escape programmed the line-up with input from media partners including Amazing Radio, BBC Music, Clash, DIY, The Line of Best Fit, London In Stereo and So Young.
