“I think we all felt straight away John Peel encapsulates what we want to do at Norwich Sound and Vision. It’s not about the headliners but emerging bands and individuals. The festival is making a statement for new music. Nostalgia in music, particularly in live music, is all over the place with bands reforming. Each of these acts that we all liked from the past were a new band at some point trying to elbow their way in and that is what John Peel represented – getting that new music through to people.”


Stuart Hobday, director of Norwich Arts Centre on what the new John Peel festival is all about. He was speaking to the Eastern Daily Press about the John Peel Festival of New Music as part of the Norwich Sound and Vision Festival, October 11 -13.
