PASS radio, a unique freeform radio station, is back with 30 days of cutting edge music streamed live online. The station features themed shows, live performances and readings, sound art, interviews and much more.
This year PASS radio expands its sonic territory. In a double-take on the relationship between sound and spatiality, frequencies and territories, it will broadcast from studios at 44 Long Street, Cape Town, as well as a satellite studio in Limbe, Cameroon.
In the build-up to the festival, throughout September, the daily radio programme features live performances at PASS studios on Long Street. These live sessions run between 7-9pm and are guest-curated by musicians, DJs, poets and artists.
PASS radio’s broadcast programme launches on September 12 (Steve Biko Day) with Songs for Biko, a 24-hour marathon performance by many of Cape Town’s leading musicians and poets. Songs for Busi, a musical tribute to the late singer, space-queen and healer Busi Mhlongo, closes the broadcast on October 12.
