Next year's event begins to take shape...
The Great Escape - First Fifty

The Great Escape is set to welcome the Netherlands as its lead international partner for 2018.

The Brighton event has grown to become an internally important event, and each year welcomes a guest country to showcase its musical wares.

2018 will be no exceptional, with the Netherlands becoming the lead international partner for the coming year.

Dutch artists have been working with The Great Escape for 13 years now, and with the area's creative surge sparking headlines this should be a fruitful partnership.

Rudd Berends, Dutch Music Export Producer, commented: “Dutch Music Export is proud to be the focus country at TGE 2018. Our country has supported and attended TGE from year one with both the Dutch Impact Party and through various promotional support for our artists and industry. The UK is one of the most important countries for us to present the best the Lowlands has to offer and The Great Escape provides the best platform to showcase, support and promote Dutch musical talent to not only the UK but international music industries and audiences."

Don't forget: The Great Escape will host First Fifty events across London between November 21st - 23rd. Humblebrag alert! The Clash stage looks excellent...
