The radio station, which started broadcasting in 2004 for two weeks during the Brighton Festival, and was then awarded a full community broadcasting licence from OFCOM in 2007, is making it a ten year celebration for the team of home -grown broadcasters who produce a vibrant mix of locally relevant, advert free, speech and music programmes. With the addition of Kate Tempest as this years’ Guest Director, everyone at RadioReverb is very keen to work with the Festival on a daily digest of Festival performances for the month of May.
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.”
RadioReverb 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.”
