The countdown is on for the eighth International Radio Festival, which will take place in Milan for the first time. With just more than a month to go before the festivities kick off, IRF has unveiled its slate of speakers.
The line-up of speakers includes Tony Prince, founder of Disco Mix Club and DJ magazine Mixmag, who is also a veteran of pirate radio in the 60s with Radio Caroline; Herbert Visser, founder and CEO of Radio 10NL in the Netherlands; Ed Hooper, co-founder of social media app Omny Studio; Dan Jones, founder of Hoxton FM Web-radio; and Rusty Hodge, founder of SOMA FM Internet radio platform.
The conference has also announced that it will host a B2B Forum for the debate on the business of music radio content. The IRF B2B Forum will allow participants to showcase formats and productions and then broadcast them live on-air. The forum is scheduled for April 7, at 9:30 a.m.
IRF Radio City Milan will take place at the Piazza Gae Aulenti in Milan’s city center from April 7–10.
