John Peel Day - October 13th

John Peel Day - October 13th
Last updated 19th September

The very first John Peel Day will take place on Thursday October 13th.

The day will be a celebration of John's life and massive contribution to music and broadcasting with as many venues as possible staging gigs across the UK under the banner of Peel Day.

The night before Radio 1 are putting on a special night at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London. The line up so far includes New Order, The Fall, Super Furry Animals, Laura Cantrell, Jawbone, Misty in Roots and Venetian Snares.

Radio 1 will be broadcasting a mammoth six hour show from 7pm on the Thursday presented by a host of Radio 1 DJs. Live music from the nationwide gigs will feature throughout as well as highlights from the London gig recorded the night before.

We'll also be launching a new Peel website with details of Peel Day gigs across the world, every tracklisting from every session, audio and video and a huge gallery of photographs, all celebrating John's life and work.

How you can be involved!
We're encouraging as many people as possible to organise their own gig as a tribute to John. This can be anything from a couple of unsigned bands down the local pub to hiring an entire venue and booking some Happy Hardcore DJs! It's entirely up to you.

If you are producing posters or fliers to promote the event you can download a logo to use on them. We'd also like to hear about what you are organising.
This will be streamed live on the web, and will also be available via Sirius. It starts at 7PM British time (2PM EDT on the web; 7PM EDT (5-hour delay) on Sirius.)
