unconformist radio


that west coast feeling


Unconformist Radio 7UN was a pop-up radio station broadcasting on 1485 AM during the Unconformity in Queenstown Tasmania, from 14-16 October 2016.

7UN provided a subliminal sonic background to the festival through music, soundscapes, news, interviews, and talk, involving and celebrating the unique community of Queenstown.

Listeners accessed the station during the festival via their car stereo, bedside radio, and in special valve-driven 'wireless hotspots' located around town.

7UN was produced by the Unconscious Collective
