The power of radio continues to be astonishing and impactful in today’s world. The radio is still considered as the world’s most consumed medium and the largest distributor of contemporary music globally. Taking note of this important fact, a need was felt to gather various radio stations from around the world on one platform to deliberate on the current trends. As a result, the International Radio Festival came into being with the inaugural edition held in 2010 at Zurich, Switzerland, with the key motive to reflect the very best and the very latest in music radio programming. Being held for the second time from June 9-19, 2011, the International Radio Festival has emerged as an important forum for music radio makers to meet and showcase some of the best music formats available on-air today, and is all set to welcome even more radio icons than the previous year.
