DIY kicks off 2023 partnership with the Great Escape with sell out TGE FIRST FIFTY gig

Headliners Dinner Party at the Moth Club, Hackney, London

The Great Escape returns to Brighton for May 2023, but fans didn’t have to wait that long to get their new music fix. On 15 November, eight venues across East London played host to some of the festival’s rising stars for The Great Escape’s First Fifty event.

DIY hosted a sold out line up at London’s iconic Moth Club venue, headlined by Dinner Party one of the UK’s buzziest bands of the moment, with the ensuing mosh pit mayhem of predominantly GenZ and Millenial women – a core DIY audience..

Another DIY gig, another mosh pit!

Adding to the events success were the rest of the line up which included Nell Mescall and Seb Lowe.
