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.”
