The Great Escape has announced the first 68 acts for its debut digital edition.

Among the first acts confirmed to perform online are Chubby and the Gang, Pyra, rising rapper Goya Gumbani, Spanish alt-rockers Belako, plus more.

In addition to the musical line up, there's also details on The Great Escape Conference featuring some of the industry's top dogs, including founder and CEO of Hipgnosis Songs Fund Merck Mercuriadis, Women In CTRL founder and AIM chair Nadia Khan, and president of TaP Music Wendy Ong.
