The festival recently held a three-day bash in London, as a means of introducing fans to some of the artists who will take next year by storm.
Returning in 2017, The Great Escape will welcome sets from South London talent Ray BLK, urban folk poet L.A. Salami, Rough Trade signings Goat Girl, and more.
The festival will pair with Swiss Music Export to shine a light on Swiss talent, while the first spotlight performer has been confirmed as a much-tipped songwriter Rag'n'Bone Man. I
n addition to this, fans can now place a deposit for their tickets before then paying off the final amount gradually - the deposit kicks off at £30.
Kevin Moore, Event Manager said “TGE continues to break the mould and here we come again with the first fifty bands confirmed to play in 2017 that demonstrate what a unique and diverse festival we are. We’re truly delighted to welcome Rag’n’Bone back to the event for our first Spotlight Show, it’s going to be an incredible homecoming performance. It’s our mission to give everyone the opportunity to discover their new favourite artist and with the introduction of our festival ticket deposit scheme, as well as the return of our Young Adult tickets for those aged 16 and 17, the festival is more accessible than ever before. Roll on May!”
