“Synonymous with new music discovery and acting as a springboard for rising artists, The Great Escape is the festival for new music,” reads a press statement.

Alongside performances The Great Escape has revealed details of 2024’s first TGE Presents show, in partnership with Ticketmaster New Music. The free entry show takes place on February 22, and is set to be headlined by Flat Party, with support from Saloon Dion and Velvetine. It will mark the first in a series of monthly gigs set to be held at London’s Old Blue Last in the lead up to the festival.

Last year, NME named artists including Bellah, Big Wett, Dolores Forever, Mae Stephens and Sam Akpro among the best new acts at The Great Escape 2023.

Another highlight was Picture Parlour’s set at The Great Escape, which NME said in a four-star review was full of “gasp-inducing rock’n’roll thrills”.

2023 also saw The Pretenders kick off their intimate UK club tour at The Great Escape festival, where they debuted new songs.
