Want to get involved in the music and festival industry without picking up an instrument?

freestival is a live-to-air show on SYN, run by Imogen Hanrahan.

We focus on chatting to people keeping the music industry afloat and accessible and ask them to share their advice to young people entering the scene. Of course, we also play heaps good tracks by mostly-local artists associated with each week’s guest –  it wouldn’t be a proper Sat eve without a bangin’ playlist.

If you’d like to get involved, submit music, or even ask a few questions, email [email protected] or get in touch via Facebook and Instagram.

freestival airs Saturdays 6pm AEST on SYN 90.7FM & DAB+ in Melbourne, SYN via radio streaming services, and syn.org.au worldwide.
