On Air – On Site is a yearly radio festival based in The Hague, NL.

The festival features a 48-hour broadcast schedule of live performances, fixed media, and radio artworks specifically composed for the festival by an international community of sound artists. The project explores the boundaries of being simultaneously on air in a physical and virtual space, challenging different radio formats. On Air – On Site invites the involved artists and the public to re-consider the physical spaces as a context rather than a location and to rethink together a different relationship between communities and experimental radio practice.

The festival is part of a larger initiative to establish an experimental community radio station in The Hague called BUG radio, set to begin streaming in autumn 2024. .

In this show, sound artist and radio maker Margherita Brillada who conceived this initiative recognising the sociological dimension of radio as a public space for artistic involvement, is showcasing some of the works featured in the first edition. The 2024 edition will be held from May 24 at 20.00 until May 26 at 20.00 CEST, online on onaironsite.com, on the FM, and on site at the Institute of Sonology and WEST Den Haag and Radio Tonka.

The event is in partnership with our fiends form Cashmere Radio, where part of the event will be streamed online.
