The Great Escape and Clash are set to partner on unique live launch event First Fifty.
The mammoth Brighton event returned earlier this year, showcasing some of the most sought after acts from across the globe.
Well, 2017 promises to be even better. The Great Escape plans to get under way with First Fifty, a new live launch at venues across London that aims to introduce some of the artists who will dominate the next 12 months.
Naturally, Clash wanted to be front and centre - so we're partnering our very own stage, with further details to be announced shortly.
Mama Festivals CEO, Rory Bett says: “Over the last 11 years The Great Escape has been providing the soundtrack to our future with over 3,750 artists showcasing in Brighton and today’s announcement of the FIRST FIFTY previews the next wave of artists set to go down in TGE history. No other festival out there launches in this way with 10 live gigs and the best thing is that this is just the start, we’ve still got another 400+ bands to announce in the new year!”
