Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station – a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts. Broadcasting live from Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts, the station aims to promote radio as an art form, encouraging challenging and radical new approaches to the medium.

Our broadcast schedule will include a series of 14 newly commissioned radio works, live studio shows, pre-recorded features and 12 free Live-to-Air performances. As in previous editions the majority of the programme will be made up from selections submitted to an international open call for sound art and radio works. Please note that the deadline for our open call has now passed.

The full broadcast schedule will be published in early May so please check back for updates then. You can follow us on social media or sign up to our mailing list to be kept up to date on the latest news.

Radiophrenia first began broadcasting in April 2015 with subsequent editions in 2016 and 2017. The websites from our previous festivals have been archived below.
