Cavan’s Áine Cahill is one of fifty up-an-coming acts selected to play at mini-festival First Fifty in London, a precursor for Brighton-based festival The Great Escape.

First Fifty acts as the launch event for the following year’s Great Escape, which is renowned internationally for introducing the best new talent in the world to audiences.

Also set to play at this year’s launch, which will take place in five venues over three days in east London, are KOPS, Stella Donnelly, Bad Gyal and Naaz.

Cahill also played the event in 2017, with the former Plec Pick clearly making an impact on the organisers.

Tickets for First Fifty are on sale now at £5 each, while early-bird tickets for The Great Escape are also available.

The fifty acts announced for November’s festival are as follows:
