Brighton Festival announces Radio Reverb as Broadcast Media Partner for 2017

Brighton Festival is delighted to announce that RadioReverb, Brighton’s not for profit radio station, will be Broadcast Media Partner for 2017.

RadioReverb will be working with Brighton Festival to produce a daily digest of Festival performances for the month of May. 

RadioReverb started broadcasting in 2004 for two weeks during Brighton Festival, and was then awarded a full community broadcasting licence from OFCOM in 2007, making this year a ten-year anniversary celebration for the team of home-grown broadcasters who produce a vibrant mix of locally relevant, advert free, speech and music programmes.  

Emma Robertson, Head of Press & PR at Brighton Festival says: 'We are delighted to be partnering with Radio Reverb 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 Radio Reverb’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.'

Tracey Allen, Director of RadioReverb says 'As we celebrate our tenth year of having a broadcast license, it was very apt that we once again worked 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 shows on RadioReverb at 97.2FM, on DAB and on-line at

The show will be repeated 10pm each evening and at 8am the following morning.
