RadioReverb partners with Brighton Festival
RadioReverb will be this years’ Broadcast Media Partner for Brighton Festival 2017.
The radio station, which started broadcasting in 2004 for two weeks during the Brighton Festival, is also celebrating 10 years of full-time broadcasting this year with a special “Reverbathon”. A 12-hour show live from Brighton’s Open Market will be aired on March 11th from 7am till 7pm with a different presenter each hour.
Emma Robertson, Head of Press & PR at Brighton Festival said: “We are delighted to be partnering with RadioReverb this year. Our Guest Director Kate Tempest is passionate about the power of the arts to bring communities together so it is extremely fitting that we are working with a radio station that provides a platform for such a diverse spectrum of voices. With RadioReverb’s support, we hope that Brighton Festival 2017 will encourage the whole city to come together to celebrate the creativity in their communities and try something new.”
Director Tracey Allen said “As we celebrate our tenth year of having a broadcast license, it is very apt that we once again work with Brighton Festival, which was the catalyst for RadioReverb becoming an official station in the city. Having Kate Tempest curate the festival fits in perfectly with our values of community, diversity and using communication for social good and entertainment. We can’t wait for Brighton Festival to start.”
Listeners can hear the Brighton Festival hour-long shows each weekday from 5pm on RadioReverb from May 6th. The same show will be repeated 10pm each evening and at 8am the following morning.
Podcasts of all the show will also be found behind RadioReverb’s Listen Again button.
