Radio Black Forest encourages people who can contribute through art, music or any other medium to get in touch and collaborate, invoking a collective spirit amongst artists and performers..

Since its inception, Radio Black Forest has received no funding from any organisations,and is 100% DIY and committed to bringing challenging avant garde cultural events (from concerts to film screenings) into the public arena.

With an avid interest in fringe cultures and ideas pertaining to the esoteric spectrum, Radio Black Forest invokes what is left of the DIY ethos and makes potential audiences participators not spectators . From new and exciting acts to innovators and established artists alike, Radio Black Forest seeks quality and integrity rather than the latest fads and trends.. Radio Black Forest also recommends that you drink cups of tea..Regularly…
