On Air Fest is advancing
the culture of audio.

We bring together an expansive range of emerging and established voices to explore the creative possibilities of sound.

On Air Fest has evolved into the premier cultural event for audio creatives and inspired listeners. For five years, our flagship festival in Brooklyn has taken place every winter (pre-pandemic at Wythe Hotel) and featured over 100 artists who bring forward innovative ideas and present new work.

In 2021, we premiered our first virtual festival which engaged an expansive global audience of audio enthusiasts for three days of intimate conversations, magical performances, and inspired listening. You can watch recorded sessions here.

Throughout the year, On Air Fest produces a range of cultural programming, from annex events, to our residency program, creative collaborations to a newsletter and podcasts. On Air Fest carves a place for artists and storytellers who are defining this moment in audio.

"You can break the wall that you're in"
