REMOTE UTOPIAS a 24-hour radio festival.
NTS Radio supported by Jameson Irish Whiskey launch a 24-hour radio festival.
Welcome to a radio festival for the ages (Digital ages that is).
On Saturday, May 2 from 6pm AEST, NTS will host Remote Utopias on their website - a 24-hour radio takeover across two live channels. To help bridge the gap during the lockdown period, NTS has called on musicians, DJs, artists and filmmakers from across the globe for a whirlwind of music of all genres, exclusive premieres, radio and live video streams straight to your sofa.
Remote Utopias will connect a diverse line-up of established and emerging artists, all of varying genres, generations and geographies. We have called on some of our best mates to perform, including hotly tipped New Zealand rapper JessB (who recently played Jameson House of Rounds stage at Laneway), Irish rap sensation Rejjie Snow, rising LA talent DUCKWRTH & British soul singer Celeste.
As the world has gone into shutdown with gigs, festivals and tours being cancelled, mounting pressure has been placed on creatives, musicians and artists. To help, we are supporting the NTS' programmed 24-hour radio festival with that support going directly to upwards of fifty artists, from NTS residents to emerging and established talent, during a period of unprecedented uncertainty within the industry. The festival will also be fundraising for The Global FoodBanking Network, encouraging listeners to donate when they tune in and give back to the global community.
While the world continues to stay home, music can never be locked down, and music (like Jameson) is best shared between mates.
TUNE INTO REMOTE UTOPIAS FROM 6PM AEST SATURDAY, MAY 2ND
