Welcome to
Radio Summerhall

We are a different kind of online radio ‘station’ for Edinburgh, and beyond, working in conjunction with the great creative hub for the arts, Summerhall, in south Edinburgh. Inspired by a venue that is vibrant all year-round we decided to combine our love of the arts and passion for music to create a portal for shows we hope you’ll enjoy and share.

Radio Summerhall needs you! We’re looking for volunteers to join us in the following areas: fundraising, digital marketing, administration, producing, researching and web editing. If you’re interested, please email nick@radiosummerhall.com for more information.

Radio Summerhall

Launched in July 2014 our initial aim is:


1. To offer great online music content you might not hear elsewhere. Our shows, currently All Shook Up, As The Crow Flies, Back At The Control Tower, Caledonia Uber Ellis, Music Routes, My Generation, Red, Hot and Fuzzy, The Reggae Basement, Summerhall Live and Wild Mood Swings, are pre-recorded but hopefully retain a live feel, with some of the fluffs and mistakes left in. Our aim is to upload these to the site at the same time every week, but in reality this often doesn’t happen so do follow us on Mixcloud to ensure you never miss a new show.

2. To support the other residents of Summerhall, giving them a voice to tell each other and the wider world what they’re up to. A huge array of talent and resources permanently reside in the building and we want you to hear their stories. Coming soon.
3. To support performers coming to Summerhall and to allow you, the audience, to gain a deeper insight into the work they’re producing. We chat to the creative minds behind the shows and upload short interviews to the site, which can be listened to either before or after you see their performance.
4. To deliver interesting documentary, political and storytelling shows covering a broad range of subjects, but focusing mainly on Scottish talent, issues and events.



Moving Forward

We’re always keen to hear from people who have an Edinburgh-based festival or event to promote or have something interesting to say. We’d also like to hear from you if you’d be interested in presenting a show or helping out with the running of the station, social media etc. And if you’d like to throw money at us to help cover our day-to-day costs we certainly won’t say no!!

If you would like to be involved, please contact us.

We also plan to put on live events and exhibitions, so sign up for our newsletter here to keep updated.
