The Great Escape announce first 50 acts for their 2022 festival

All of the artists will also play during the new music festival's 'First Fifty' showcase later this year

The Great Escape has announced the first 50 acts for their 2022 festival.

The Brighton-based new music showcase was forced to cancel both its 2020 and 2021 editions due to the coronavirus pandemic, though a virtual event was held earlier this year.

The Great Escape will return from May 11-14 next year, and the festival has this morning (September 15) announced the first set of artists who will grace their stages next year.
