A/V Radio – an off-grid independent radio station, is scheduled to open April 1 on the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail.

Managed and curated by Ree de la Vega and produced by Dash.Studio, the station is set to broadcast worldwide through June 30 as part of this year’s Art on the Beltline. The pop-up station will be located at 830 Willoughby Way NE.

The shows will be broadcast via audio and live from Friday to Sunday and rebroadcast the rest of the week. Audiences can listen and watch videos on the avradio.live website, by downloading the free avradio.live app, or in person through speakers on the Beltline.

According to a press release, the station will be hosted by Atlanta’s top professional DJs, as well as national and international guests. Featured music genres will include Latin, House, Disco, New Wave (80’s), Goth, Afrobeat, Jersey Club, Techno, Funk, Underground Club and Vogue Ballroom.

“We seek to leverage a global network to give voice to emerging artists via A/V radio,” de la Vega said. “And we are committed to creating an inclusive space for communities and individuals to connect. Amplifying diverse voices is the definition of empowerment and understanding.

A shipping container, custom designed and manufactured by Arc Design, will house the A/V radio. Converted into a portable DJ booth with state-of-the-art sound and broadcast equipment by engineer Michael Boot, in-person visitors won’t be able to miss the station’s ‘electric plum’ illuminated exterior.

Courtney Hammond, Creative Director at Dash.Studio, said, “With A/V, Ree’s vision for independent radio fills a clear niche in ATL, inspiring audiences to engage with the legendary musical talent of Atlanta. A/V technology also provides international reach (with the app) to access diverse genres, bypassing all physical and conceptual boundaries. »

A/V Radio is sponsored by Atlanta Beltline, Dashboard and Dash.Studio.
