The Great Escapes’ Rory Bett said: “It feels great to be announcing fifty amazing artists to play TGE ’18 and to launch the show with its very own festival FIRST FIFTY 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 internationally-reaching 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.”
