Learning from the music greats that came before us? That’s what creating epic new music is all about. That’s why we’re thrilled to play a part in the John Peel Festival of New Music which honors the late BBC Radio 1 DJ in the best possible way: providing a platform for new talent. Taking place at the Annual Norwich Sound & Vision convention, this event is your opportunity to get your music heard, performing in front of more than 10,000 fans and 500 conference delegates.
Norwich Sound & Vision carries on the DJ’s legacy with this new initiative, hosting over 100 new bands from around the world in 10 city-center venues over three nights.
Rolling Stone proclaims that John “was famous for being at the forefront of new music, both from the United Kingdom and abroad.”
The influential DJ passed away in 2004 of a heart attack at the age of 65. His record collection of more than 25,000 vinyl LPs and 40,000 vinyl singles will be released as part of a British Arts Council project called ‘The Space’ which will recreate his home studio, including his personal notes on each record, in an online interactive museum.
