Brighton's Great Escape festival has announced its first 50 acts with many prepping to perform across Hackney venues in a series of gigs in November.
The east London live launch on November 17 will celebrate the return of The Great Escape festival next year, after a two year hiatus.
Up-and-coming artists performing that night include South London lyricist Enny and south Asia-influenced R&B act Priya Ragu.
Brighton's Lime Garden will bring some guitar-driven indie surf rock to Hackney while artists KAM-BU and Miso Extra will bring the best of new rap and grime.
The music on offer ranges across genres, from electro-pop to gospel jazz to post-punk.
