The Radio Academy Festival 2023:

Sound Connections

Thank you for a wonderful Festival! Photos and videos of the sessions coming soon...

The Radio Academy Festival returns for a full day of discussion, debate, sharing and celebration. Our Sound Connections theme builds on last year’s deep focus on the power of audio to connect with listeners, and each other. How do we connect with our own voice and experience? Where do we start navigating the growing connections between people and technology? What can we do when we feel ourselves or our communities disconnect?

Podcasters, broadcasters, designers, creators - wherever you work in audio, you are invited to come together, learn, reflect and spark your own Sound Connections.

We will be back at the Royal College of Physicians in London's Regents Park. Running across three stages, speakers include presenters, artists, journalists, technologists, producers, commissioners and experts from stations, platforms and more. Mingle with the bosses and the creators. Meet our sponsors. Learn something new, be inspired and share your own story.

The first speakers and sessions have now been announced - check out the programme and stay tuned for more speakers and topics being released in the lead up to the Festival.

Tuesday 12th September, 8am-8pm
Royal College of Physicians, London
