#RADFEST10: Radio Festival 2010 Preview

October 17, 2010

Looking forward to my first visit to Media City in Salford to attend two days of the 2010 Radio Academy Radio Festival. It’s packed full of events for and featuring radio professionals and for those who are motivated to provide commentaries on what they observe in front of them.

Just like my trip to Amsterdam to The Next Web, there is something ridiculous and childishly exciting about attending such events. It’s like going on a school trip. Pitiful, ey?

There are a few sessions which I’m particularly looking forward to. The 45 minute session reviewing the creative moments from radio over the past twelve months – “The Art of Creativity” – could be useful. The chance to hear Jeremy Kyle talk about his career in the media, conversation between Penny Smith and LBC presenter Nick Ferrari and a session concentrating on the competition for audiences presented by the likes of Spotify or iTunes and corporate entities like Coca-Cola and Nike. But just as the festival preview in the Radio Academy podcast touched on, it’s going to be difficult to decide which events from both streams I drop. I’ll be like a rabbit caught in the headlights, I’m sure.

If you’re interested in catching up on my impressions of the event – think of me as the first year at the Fresher’s Fair – follow me on Twitter, trot back to this blog every now and again (there’s that handy Radio Festival logo on the top right of the page which must make it blindingly obvious!) or subscribe to the RSS wotnot.
