Brian Eno has announced details about this year’s Brighton Festival, which he is curating under the title Guest Artistic Director.

Eno is leading the programme for the May 1-23 festival, and as well as music, events are tailored towards theatre, books, debate and outdoor events.

Talvin Singh is among the musical acts confirmed to appear at the event, along with Leafcutter John and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

“This festival’s reputation rests on its commitment to presenting new and original talent in unexpected combinations – crossing the boundaries with ease and lightness,” Eno said.

He added: “I’m excited about working in Brighton: I love the city, and I have great respect for the festival, which has consistently placed itself at the cutting edge of the creative arts in Britain.”

See Brightonfestival.org for the full line-up and timetable details.
