It’s that time of year again. The nights are closing in, the air is getting crisper and Christmas songs are probably knocking on the front door as we speak – but 2019 is a-coming, with The Great Escape announcing details of this year’s First Fifty, a series of shows taking place between November 27th-29th featuring the first acts confirmed to play at the new music shindig in Brighton next year.
Still with us? Great, because we’re going to be jumping aboard for all the fun – hosting a night at The Old Blue Last on Tuesday 27th November, featuring lo-fi mover Ed The Dog, Welsh favourites Himalayas and, as tipped and loved by Blossoms themselves, Fuzzy Sun.
Need to catch up? Here you go.
They join an array of names announced for both First City and The Great Escape next year, including Dork faves Indoor Pets, Self Esteem, Lucia, Fontaines D.C, Pip Blom and Zuzu along with Jockstrap, SKYND, Wooze, Connie Constance, L Devine, Radiant Children, Krush Puppies and loads loads more. Enough to make fifty. It’s sort of in the name.
Tickets for Dork’s First Fifty show are available now right here, with full details on those shows and The Great Escape here.
