Annual new music smorgasbord The Great Escape has confirmed the first 50 acts that will play next year’s festival and announced a host of shows set to take place in London, Brighton and online in November. 

The First Fifty will take over venues in east London on November 17 before moving to the festival’s seaside home of Brighton on November 19. The second day of the event, November 18, will take the form of a livestream that will host performances from artists based in the US, Germany, Spain, Japan, Holland, Norway and the Dominican Republic. 

The London leg will be set over multiple venues, much like The Great Escape itself, and will star the likes of Priya Ragu, Enny, Lime Garden and Delilah Montagu. The Brighton event will take place at Chalk and will feature performances from TikTok singer Sam Ryder, R&B newcomer Isabelle brown and Brighton’s own singer-songwriter Heights. 

The livestream will also see the likes of Wallice, Gustaf, Adam Melchor, Sycco and more bring their diverse sounds to the digital show.
