02nd August 2023

Looking for 2024’s Reverbathon? Go here

REVERBATHON is RadioReverb’s fundraiser which helps Brighton’s favourite radio station stay on air. It’s a live two-day broadcast and community event which will take place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September 2023.

Broadcasting live from the RadioReverb’s studio in Brighton’s Open Market on Saturday 16th September and the Hope & Ruin pub on Sunday 17th, the money raised by the event will contribute to the running of the radio station. This will enable it to remain playlist and advert free.

It’ll also celebrate the social landscape of Brighton and Hove as well as showcase the top talent that Brighton & Hove has to offer.

Each hour a different presenter will take to the airwaves with a special edition of their unique show. Other presenters, guests and musicians will be dropping in for short sessions and chats, creating a totally unique, one-off local radio experience. Presenters scheduled to appear include Sharon Duggall, Goatee Phil, Karen Morton, Paul Wilson, Melita Dennett, Richard Sheldrake, Pete Jones, Mark Johnson, Alan Wares and many more.

We’d love it if you dropped by to say hello, and hung around for some food and drink at both the Open Market and the Hope & Ruin.

All the money raised during the Reverbathon goes directly back into the running of the station, upgrading equipment and giving an opportunity to bring in new shows with local voices.

RadioReverb is the sound of your city and, with its team of home-grown broadcasters, delivers an entertaining and socially conscious schedule of programs for the Brighton and Hove community.
