“IRF is the place to go to find out about the future of radio.”
Scott Cohen, Co-Founder, The Orchard


The International Radio Festival is the world’s first and only conference and on-air event for those with a vested interest in the business and curation of music radio programming, and since its beginnings in 2010, the IRF has showcased over 250 radio stations and their shows.

We created the IRF to offer radio makers, presenters, producers and all those with a vested interest in the curation and business of music radio content, an annual conference platform to network with industry leaders, knowledge share, trade ideas, discover the latest innovations, and explore creative music radio business strategies for the digital age, and above all make friends with radio makers from around the world; and an opportunity to showcase their  music radio formats and programmes to each other, and the world, live-on-air across the globe, and back to their home audiences.

The IRF is a boutique event where attendees with a vested interest in the music radio business have the unique chance to meet all participants and exchange ideas, formats, make global friendships and add value to their programming.

The IRF represents the world’s first and only public on-air festival and conference of its kind, and is a must attend for all those who work in music radio programming. more…
