The team behind new music mecca, The Great Escape, are launching a new event series in London this November.
The First Fifty will run for three days at venues across the capital and will showcase the breadth of new and emerging talent from the UK. Today they announced the first wave of confirmed acts and among the names was our own Sam Tompkins.
Sam has grown a large and devoted online following after putting out details of busking sessions around Brighton and attracting up to 200 people at incredibly short notice. He counts Bebe Rexha and Elton John among his fans, and has worked with everyone from Jason Derulo to Section Boyz.
Taking place from November 27-29, First Fifty will showcase some of the finest emerging talent around with shows at The Curtain LP Room, Hoxton Square Bar And Kitchen, The Old Blue Last, The Courtyard Theatre, The Macbeth and Zigfrid Von Underbelly.
