Fault Radio is a grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to creating a center for modern electronic/dance music culture in the Bay Area. Originally conceived as a pop-up live video-streaming platform of DJ sets and digital archives in 2018, we are finally bringing the URL to IRL via our physical station and storefront,located at 670 Commercial St. San Francisco, CA.
Fault Radio functions as both a stationary and mobile community hub; we bridge the electronic music community on- and offline via live streams and collaborative pop-up events to document and experience the brilliance of our local music scene.
Since its founding, Fault’s unique online archive documents the richness of the SF electronic music scene while elevating DJ culture. Through the production of articles, podcasts, documentaries, annual record fairs, and an ever-expanding variety of educational and live event programming, we strive to compile and showcase the richness of the local electronic music community for future generations to look back on with pride.
We are dedicated to making our station inclusive, creating a safe, supportive space for bringing our DJ, artist, and music-lover community together. We do this in the spirit of promoting community enrichment, authentic expression, and co-creation, with collaboration at the root of everything we do.
Our online listenership and viewer base includes an international audience and our outreach extends to cities such as Los Angeles, Portland, New York City, and London. However, our focus remains on the Bay Area, rooted in our belief that the future is local!
