Alongside the First Fifty news, Italy has been announced as the lead country partner for 2023's The Great Escape. There'll be two special Italian showcases across the three days of music, as well as a networking reception, all coordinated by the music export office Italia Music Export.

Nur Al Habash, Italia Music Export explains: “We're really happy and excited to have Italy as the lead country at The Great Escape 2023. We've been working on exporting Italian music since 2018 and have already achieved great exposure for our artists. We've been experiencing a renewed interest in our music scene (perhaps this has something to do with Måneskin becoming world famous, I suppose!) so we hope TGE23 will be a great occasion for British music professionals to discover some up-and-coming artists from Italy.”

The Great Escape itself will feature more than 450 up-and-coming audiences across 35+ walkable venues, plus a music industry-led conference, between 10th and 13th May in Brighton. Tickets, starting from £70, are on sale now.
