Errors, Tall Ships, Cold Specks are also booked for the inaugral Norwich event

Liars, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Mayday Parade are among the bands confirmed to play a new festival, which has been named in honour of the late DJ and new music champion, John Peel.

The first John Peel Festival Of New Music will take place from October 11-13 in Norwich and will also feature sets from the likes of Errors, Cold Specks, Reckless Love and a series of other acts, with more artists set to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Hosted by the Norwich Sound and Vision convention, the three day event will see performances from around 50 bands at 10 venues across the city.

John Peel’s record collection is currently in the midst of being released online. The names of 2,600 albums of the broadcaster’s cherished record collection are being released as part of a project called ‘The Space’, run by The John Peel Centre in Stowmarket, which aims to recreate Peel’s home studio and library online.

Peel, who died in 2004, had a collection of about 25,000 vinyl albums. Every week, the museum is expanding its virtual museum by adding the names of another 100 albums in alphabetical order. Although copyright prevents the website streaming the albums online, there will be links to listen elsewhere. There will also be detailed information about each record, taken from Peel’s personal notes.
