Last year, for the first time ever, The Great Escape hosted a series of London gigs called First Fifty, featuring acts from its 2017 line-up with a series of live shows in November. And good news! The series is returning this year!
Taking place across five East London venues between 21st-23rd November, the shows will cost £5 a ticket.
That’s not all: DIY have invited down some of our favourites too for the occasion. Ten Tonnes, King Nun, Freak and FEET will play a DIY Presents show at Kamio on 23rd November. Tickets for the show can be bought right here.
