10 DAYS TO GO: Sounds ON AIR

The Freak Zone Playlist

We’re popping up all over the digital and DAB airwaves at the moment giving out a flavour of what to expect on Sunday 1st May. Here’s a bit of a round up of where you can hear us…

BBC Introducing Manchester

On Saturday just gone Your Boy Roesh invited Riv & Siân to the lovely BBC Radio Manchester studio just down the road at MediaCityUK to get the story of the festival and take a look at the BBC Introducing artists featuring on 1st May.

You can listen back to the show on BBC Sounds here.

And- he’s invited us back for the next 2 weeks to get everyone right in the SFTOC mood. To mark this beautiful relationship we’ve put together a Spotify playlist of all the BBC Introducing artists you can check out at this year’s festival – and it’s a lot!

The Freak Zone Playlist on BBC Radio 6 Music

This week we put together a playlist of some of the more genre-defying acts at this year’s festival for the Freak Zone on 6 Music, including tracks from experimental trio Mandy, Indiana, gabber metalist Lady Neptune and queer jungle vocalist Grove, as well as some of our most treasured alumni, poet saxophonist Alabaster DePlume and experimental rock outfit Black Country, New Road.
