Tide Wave Radio is a platform for the dissemination of contemporary music and sound art that crosses genres and territories.

Set within the context of a disappeared coastal location, the radio station opens on Tide Mills beach on the 22nd of September, 2021, for the LYT Tide Mills Festival. The online radio station will run from the 22nd of September and the Festival will run between the 22nd to the 26th of September 2021.

The project is supported by LYT Productions, ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND, National Lottery Heritage Fund, South Downs National Park Authority and Future Dreaming Ltd.


Tide Wave Radio is part of a series of public art projects by artist Guyan Porter.

Tide Wave Radio will run along side performances on site, creating work that will mark or celebrate moving into a different time. As further programmes are developed with guest presenters, curators, new dialogues, new works and new locations, new contexts and new sounds will be played.
