The festival Radio Revolten 2016 and the book “30 Days of Radio Art” reclaim FM radio as an open-access medium for cultural use. “30 Days of Radio Art” covers the presented artworks and daily events of Radio Revolten alongside contemporary thinking by radio activists and artists on the current and future use of their material and medium of choice. It is written in English and features specially commissioned photographs.
The book about the festival has been written by a mixture of key organisers, artists, thinkers and observers.

For the month of October 2016 the International Radio Art Festival Radio Revolten gathered 100 of today’s radio artists in the city of Halle (Saale) in Germany, hosted by the community radio station CORAX. Radio Revolten featured a dedicated city-wide radio art frequency, installations, live performances, conferences, workshops and public interventions. Radio Revolten was by far the world’s most extensive radio art festival to date.
