Brighton radio stations gather for Digital Festival

This year’s Brighton Digital Festival will feature a range of speakers involved in Brighton’s local radio scene.

Representatives from Juice Brighton, Gaydio, Platform B, 1BrightonFM, URF, Code South and Radio Reverb will be there, whilst the keynote talk will be delivered by musician, writer and broadcaster Marcus O’Dair from Grasscut.

The full day, Radio // Future Sounds event is aimed at everyone interested in new forms of sharing stories and music through radio and digital channels. More than 25 industry experts will speak at the Brighton Digital Festival event on 22 September 2016 at Patterns, Brighton.

Aimed at radio producers, broadcasters, creatives, academics, students and the digital community, the event will invite music, spoken word and radio pioneers to share their vision of the future. The event has been curated by totallyradio.com and Fugu.

Diversity will be a key theme at this year’s event, with a panel dedicated to women and diversity in radio. Panel speakers for this session include NTS grime DJ A.G, Imriel Morgan and Satia Sa Dias, co-hosts of the Melanin Millennials podcast and Marie Horner, who is broadcast and digital programme producer at the Roundhouse in London. Also speaking is Miia Laine, station manager of SOAS Radio London and Harriet Taylor who is a station manager and presenter at Radar Radio in London.

The Radio // Future Sounds day will also feature a show and tell with young radio feature maker, producer and sound designer Hana Walker-Brown and Ken Freedman, station manager of New Jersey’s WFMU in conversation with Sarah Nicol of Resonance FM. Other guests include Darren Knott, DJ and producer of Ninja Tune’s legendary Solid Steel mix series and Nick Quah, founder of the influential podcasting newsletter Hot Pod.

Satia Sa Dias, co-host of Melanin Millennials, a UK podcast covering Brit pop culture, race and millennial struggles and event speaker, added: “I’m looking forward to discussing the great steps taken forward for women and diversity in radio, as well as plotting how we can go that extra mile in our quest for inclusivity.”

Musician, writer, broadcaster and keynote speaker Marcus O’Dair, said: “This is an exciting time for radio, both on air and online, but perhaps a critical one too. Given the rise of algorithms, how secure is the presenter anyway? What, indeed, is the future of this original broadcast medium in the twenty-first century? I’m not sure we’ll solve everything in a single day, but we’ll give it a damn good shot.”

Radio // Future Sounds will take place at Patterns on 22 September from 10am to 6pm. To book a ticket and to find out more go to radiofuturesounds.org.
