Worldwide FM is an award winning platform for underground music, culture and stories from around the globe, founded by Gilles Peterson in September 2016. The station is based in East London, with branches in Berlin, Kyoto, Los Angeles, Paris, Rio, Tokyo and beyond. Every day we work with each other to shine a light on marginalised music, to empower movements and scenes, and create world class audio and video with our friends across the globe. File-hosting platform WeTransfer help power the new station, whose mission statement is the same as ours – to explore and tie together the shape-shifting diversity of global creativity.
Respect and equality is foundational to the ethos of the station; we are committed to implementing the best practices in keeping our staff safe, and to improving the experience of everyone at Worldwide FM. We are also committed to offering talent and performers a fair budget when brand or external support is involved. Ultimately, anything gained from collaborations with like-minded organisations goes straight back into the station to maintain and improve equipment and/or create better conditions for the people who work here.
