Riot On The Radio festival kicks off later this month
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.
Taking place at the Windsor Arst Centre, the [b]Riot On The Radio[/b]festival will celebrate music, film, art and spoken word by artists inspired by the late [b]Clash[/b] man Joe Strummer.
Highlights of the weekend include [b]Spiritualized[/b]’s Sean Cook’s project [b]The Flies[/b] and a Rock’n’Roots night DJ’ed by [b]Andy Weatherall and DJ Scratchy[/b].
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.”
