A weekend of new music and arts presented by [b]Strummerville: The Joe Strummer Foundation For New Music[/b] is to take place from October 19.

The opening night party includes a screening of recent acclaimed biopic [b]Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten[/b].

The weekend will also be a platform for new artists to perform, as festival director Sascha Evans says:"This festival is not just a celebration of Joe’s life but a celebration of artists, established and new, who have been inspired by him. Riot on the Radio is about giving emerging artists a platform to perform alongside more experienced ones."
