Chris Hawkins: A Brief His­tory of Mu­sic Fes­ti­vals

6 MU­SIC, 6.00AM

This week­end is Glas­ton­bury. And as well as the usual cov­er­age of live per­for­mances and back­stage gos­sip across the ra­dio, on 6 Mu­sic (and avail­able on­line), Chris Hawkins and Char­la­tans front­man Tim Burgess present a his­tory of the golden age of mu­sic fes­ti­vals. They be­gin with Chuck Berry at the New­port Jazz Fes­ti­val in 1958, and go on to fol­low the story of Bob Dy­lan go­ing elec­tric, Richie Havens per­form­ing at Wood­stock, and Jimi Hen­drix play­ing the Isle of Wight Fes­ti­val in 1970. Brexit: A Tale of Two Cities RA­DIO 4, 11.00AM

 Mark­ing a year since the ref­er­en­dum on leav­ing the EU, pro­fes­sor Anand Menon of Kings Col­lege Lon­don, direc­tor of the think-tank The UK in a Chang­ing Europe, vis­its two cities which voted in dif­fer­ent ways to speak to cit­i­zens about the events of the 12 months since. In Ox­ford, which voted re­main, and Wake­field, which voted to leave, Menon asks lo­cal in­hab­i­tants how they feel about their de­ci­sion now, how op­ti­mistic they feel about the fu­ture, and how they think Brexit will play out.
