Gigbeth Goes Interactive
On Friday 7th and Saturday 8th November, Birmingham’s live music festival, Gigbeth, has announced that many of the performances will be broadcast live on Rhubarb Radio.
Available at www.rhubarbradio.com , the live performances will be broadcast live with direct feeds coming from the stages, featuring interviews with all the artists performing, keeping visitors in touch with this exciting festival.
A first for Birmingham, Rhubarb Radio is based at Digbeth’s Custard Factory, and is run entirely by Birmingham-based volunteers, all of which have backgrounds in the arts and multimedia.
All performances will be recorded and made available via the website through the ‘Listen Again’ feature.
Visitors to the website will also be able to interact with performers and audiences throughout the weekend, via email and Twitter, the social networking website.
Paul Hadley, Station Manager said “This is truly a first for Birmingham. We’ll be taking feeds from all the major events, so listeners can hear their favourite bands for free via their computers and mobile phones, even if they can’t get to the gigs in person.”
Also running on Saturday 8th November is Drop Beats Not Bombs at The Rainbow Pub in Digbeth. Rhubarb Radio will also be broadcasting live from 2 of the stages at this regular dance music event, and Boogie Dave is a regular presenter on the station.
