Show: Propaganda / Alternative, Indie Rock, Dance
XFM, the station officially founded in 1997 is one of the big players of the British radio landscape. The slogan “Music that rocks” differs the programme to be received in London, Manchester and Glasgow clearly from its contenders. Nowhere else on the Island can you hear 24/7 nothing but rock, indie, alternative and hiphop with a big loud “X” as a common thread.
The voice of our last few festivals, Gabby Sanderson, presents on Xfm every Saturday night from 10 PM on the radio show of Propaganda – the by now biggest UK club night with events in 21 British cities, Ireland, Australia and Brazil. Over a million music lovers a year visit these giant rock ‘n’ roll parties, which feature the Propaganda resident DJs as well as famous Indie acts (like Mumford & Sons, The Libertines, Bloc Party oder Lilly Allen) at the turntables. For the exclusive show at this year’s IRF Gabby brings founder and head honcho of Propaganda, DJ Dan, to Zurich to host a furious rumpus: You gonna be treated with interviews with Bloc Party, Does It Offen You Yeah and The Libertines, a live mix with selected songs by these artists, the dance floor battle (where a XFM presenter competes against a Propaganda DJ), the „Better Than The Original” track, the „Blast From The Past“ record and the „Future Floor Filler“. This is radio only the British are able to do. This is England. Welcome to the IRF!
