RadioReverb, Brighton’s not for profit radio station, is delighted to announce that they will be Broadcast Media Partner for Brighton Festival 2018, following last year’s partnership.
RadioReverb will broadcast a daily, hour long live show from their studios in Brighton’s Open Market, between 5pm and 6pm from 1 May until 1 June. Each show will then be repeated at 10pm each evening, and then again at 9am the following morning, giving RadioReverb listeners every opportunity to keep up to date with what’s on at Brighton Festival 2018
RadioReverb originally started broadcasting during the Brighton Festival in 2004, for only two weeks. It was then awarded a full community broadcasting licence from OFCOM in 2007. 14 years after RadioReverb first covered the festival, it will still be the best place to keep up with the latest festival news in 2018.
During last year’s Brighton Festival, RadioReverb broadcast 15 live radio shows and released 69 podcasts dedicated to Festival events, a grand total of 30 hours of audio. Highlights included coverage of ‘For The Birds’, ‘Five Short Blasts’ and ‘Collisions’ as well as an interview with Guest Director Kate Tempest.
This year’s Festival, with an exciting new programme Guest Directed by the Turner Prize-nominated visual artist and Brighton resident David Shrigley, is expected to be more dynamic than ever, and RadioReverb’s coverage will be to.
Emma Robertson, Head of Press and PR at Brighton Festival commented: “We are delighted to be working with RadioReverb again this year following our successful partnership last year. Our Guest Director David Shrigley is a Brighton resident himself and a passionate advocate of the city, so it feels particularly apt to be working with a radio station at the heart of the community.”
RadioReverb is ‘the sound of your city’ with its team of home-grown broadcasters, producing a vibrant mix of independent, locally relevant, advert free, speech and music programmes firmly rooted in the Brighton community.
RadioReverb Director Tracey Allen said: “We are delighted that RadioReverb is continuing its partnership with Brighton Festival and we have some very exciting coverage planned for 2018. As a community, not-for-profit station, RadioReverb is a perfect broadcast partner for Brighton Festival, an arts festival that is bedded in the fabric of the local community and something that deeply connects with our listeners.”
