The mastermind behind the festival, Director Darryl von Däniken comments:

Darryl Von Daniken - Festival Director for the IRF

"We are delighted to have been invited by the Government of Malta to partner with them to celebrate Valletta, the European Capital of Culture 2018. Together we will demonstrate the power that audio delivers in the overall media mix."

"Radio broadcasting kick-started the global media industry, setting international media standards, strategies and sales approach still being used today. While the power of music and voice was drastically underestimated at the beginning of the internet revolution, today's ever-growing earphone generation confirms the power of audio."

"The IRF sits at the heart of this development as a meeting of minds, and a place for knowledge sharing, networking, and forming both analogue and digital audio strategies for the future, not just for broadcasters, but also for the music and advertising industry.”
