The Berlin Rundfunk 91.4 Open Air Concert

Apr 25, 2013 —  Someone once said that video killed the radio star. That might be true. But radio itself is still going strong. Not even popular music apps like Pandora, Songza, Spotify, or iTunes have been able to wipe away the existence of radios. Somehow, radio continues to stand as steadfast and tall as the recognizable towers that transmit it. 

More importantly is what this means for the spring and summer concert seasons. All over the world, from Los Angeles to London, large, rowdy crowds file into radio station-sponsored shows like there’s no tomorrow.

The sunny, sweaty B96 Summer Bash is one of Chicago’s hottest summertime events and has been a Windy City staple since the early 1990s. Over the years, airwave angels like Kelly Clarkson and Hilary Duff have graced the stage, showing crowds that radio performers can rock it just as hard live as they do through the boombox.

Similarly, European festivals like The Berlin Rundunk 91.4 Open Air and Radio 1’s Big Weekend in London boast jam-packed lineups featuring world-renowned talents like Two Door Cinema Club and Olly Murr.

Today, users can choose from a plethora of websites and applications to listen to their music whenever, and from virtually wherever, they want. But creating awesome live shows isn’t as easy as clicking a button. That’s where radio stations come in.
