RadioReverb Set To Be Brighton Festival's Broadcast Media Partner

RadioReverb, Brighton's not for profit radio station, will be Broadcast Media Partner for Brighton Festival 2018, following last year's partnership.

During the 2017 Brighton Festival, RadioReverb broadcast fifteen live radio shows and released sixty-nine podcasts dedicated to Festival events, a grand total of thirty 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.

The station 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. 

Fourteen years after RadioReverb first covered the festival, it will still be the best place to keep up with the latest festival news in 2018. 


Emma Robertson, Head of Press and PR at Brighton Festival, said:

"Brighton Festival Guest Director David Shrigley is a local 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."

Listeners can hear RadioReverb on 97.2FM, on DAB+ and on-line at www.radioreverb.com.
