Front Room Festival

"The most successful and important piece of event programming in the station’s history. The end-result is nothing short of a triumph."

Paul Sylvester, Content Director, Absolute Radio


Absolute Radio's 'Front Room Festival' gave listeners the festival experience, featuring live music from the best bands, from the comfort of their sofas during lockdown.


- 1 x 2 hour festival-style programme

- booking the line up and managing all talent relations
- recording exclusive interviews and performances
- scripting, presenter recording, and final mix


One of the things the Nation missed the most in the midst of lock down was live music, so, with support from the Audio Content Fund, TBI Media worked to deliver the Front Room Festival to Absolute Radio.

In just over a week, whilst working remotely from home, the TBI Media team worked to create an amazing line-up of live music and interviews - imagine a virtual main stage, an acoustic tent and a virtual backstage area where Absolute's Danielle Perry and Sarah Champion caught up with all the artists.

Broadcast over the Bank Holiday weekend, Front Room Festival featured headline performances, intimate sessions and exclusive interviews from artists including:

- Snow Patrol
- Elbow
- KT Tunstall
- Deacon Blue
- Blossoms
- Tom Walker
- Lightning Seeds
- Badly Drawn Boy
- Kodaline
- Declan McKenna
- Mystery Jets
