Following the postponement of the 2020 Radio Academy Festival in May due to the coronavirus, we’re pleased to announce that it will be back in November as a virtual event.

Working with leading industry audio and video over IP provider In:Quality as the events headline sponsor, the festival will be delivered to allow a truly creative approach to the Academy’s celebration of audio bigger and better than ever before.

This years’ Festival Chair, Nick Pitts, who was Creative Director of both the highly acclaimed 2018 and 2019 Radio Academy Festivals said:

“On the eve of this year’s ARIAS ceremony, the world was gripped by coronavirus and was forced to go through drastic change; the radio and audio industry was forced to reinvent itself over night.

“From national brands becoming the fêted ‘Bedroom FM’ after snapping up almost all of the UK’s entire supply of USB microphones, to station launches and mergers & acquisitions all happening during a time when the only contact with others became a 2D experience.  Because of our industry’s resourcefulness and innovative nature, we were the medium that embraced the creativity that new tech provided.

“I’m hoping that for the Radio Academy Festival 2020 we can continue to embrace this innovation and deliver a stunning series of events and sessions in an online world that means boundaries are even more a thing of the past.”

Taking place in the week commencing 9 November, the Festival will have its usual selection of keynotes, high profile interviews and industry panels with opportunities to learn.

Passes to RadFest20 will go on sale in October.
