Besi Besemar February 20, 2015

RadioReverb will be co-ordinating the Alternative Stage at Brighton Pride 2015 for the festival’s 25th Anniversary in August.

The team at RadioReverb

RadioReverb is Brighton’s independent local radio station, run and led entirely by local volunteers, and supporting LGBT causes and Brighton Pride all year round.

The RadioReverb Alternative Performance Stage will be an integral part of Brighton Pride’s diverse and spectacular celebrations in Preston Park and will see a variety of acts perform alongside regular RadioReverb shows including Frock-A-billy, the UK’s only female fronted rockabilly show.

DJ’s and presenters from the station will be playing in between the acts presenting an exciting blend of RadioReverb, live music and entertainment.

Melita Dennet, chair of RadioReverb, said: “We’re very excited to be asked to do this and take part in one of the biggest social events of the city’s calendar. Pride is a really important day and not only is it a lot of fun but it acknowledges the contribution that LGBT make to community, social, economic and artistic life in Brighton and Hove.”

RadioReverb promotes Brighton and Hove’s LGBT community with shows like Out in Brighton, the only LGBT radio show in the city and Time for T, which is the UK’s only transgender show on FM radio. RadioReverb also champions local musicians and they are delighted to have the opportunity to host the Alternative Stage, giving a platform to LGBT performers with an exciting roster of performers from acoustic folk to full on punk rock.

Melita added: “We’re delighted to be invited to host for such a worthy cause, it’s a great privilege to be asked. We focus on a number of local LGBT charities throughout the year including Sussex Beacon, Bear Patrol and Mind Out so it is great to get a chance to support the causes and events which mean so much to us at RadioReverb at such a high profile event.”
