Mayfest Radio Open Call Selections Announced

Posted on April 29, 2016

We were absolutely inundated with responses to our Open Call for Mayfest Radio this year with submissions coming in from all over the UK and the world. It took a good two days for us to listen to all the words and bleeps and sounds that the amazing array of entrants sent in and after some arduous decision making we’ve made our choices.

This year’s selections are, in no particular order:

  • Laura Herberg – Complete Me (Episode’s 1 & 2) – Detroit, USA
  • Emma Frankland – None of us is Yet a Robot (Mayfest Special) – Brighton, UK
  • Ella Good and Nicki Kent – A Decade with Mars – Bristol, UK
  • Nick St George – Schipolada – Frome, UK
  • Ross Sutherland – Imaginary Advice – Peterborough, UK
  • Michelle Macklem – Adaptive (Episodes 1 & 3) – Montreal, Canada
  • Stephanie Rowden – Gravitation and Other Graces – Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA
  • Janet Rogers – NDNs on the Airwaves – Native Radio, What Is It? – Victoria, British Columbia
  • Stephanie Kempson – North Hotel & The Belly Button of the World – Bristol, UK


To tune and hear them, you’ll need to be listening to us from 11am on May 12. Our full schedule will be live late next week and you can follow us on twitter to stay up to speed with our program announcements.

Massive thanks go out to everyone who took the time to submit to our call out this year. We can’t wait to play you what we’ve chosen.

Luke – Mayfest Radio Producer
