Mama Group CEO Rory Bett commented: “Over the last eleven years The Great Escape has been providing the soundtrack to our future with over 3750 artists showcasing in Brighton, and today’s announcement of the First Fifty shows, previews the next wave of artists set to go down in TGE history. No other festival out there launches in this way with ten live gigs, and the best thing is that this is just the start; we’ll have another 400+ bands to announce in the new year”.
