Is Your Track Suited for Radio?


Is Your Track Suited for Radio?

Vincent de Lijser (Head of Music, 538 Radio)

Drop Your Demo Here!

For many, it's a big dream to walk into a room where the radio is playing, and you hear your track flowing through the speakers. Getting your music played on (inter)national FM radio might seem like a daunting task, but there are valuable insights available on how to increase your chances of reaching a broader audience with your music. During this session, Vincent de Lijser, the Head of Music at Radio 538, will share some insights on how the curation process works and provide valuable feedback on your tracks to explore what makes your music suitable for radio. We'll delve into questions such as who selects the music played on the radio and what type of music is effective in this medium during this session.

Excited to find out if your demo is radio-ready? Submit your demo via the VIRPP tool down below or the link above.

Please note that submitting your demo does not guarantee on-stage feedback and you need to be present during the session to be eligible for selection!
