London Podcast Festival Takes Place in September

The sixth annual London Podcast Festival will take place starting on September 2, and running through September 12. Most of it will be at Kings Place London, in front of a live audience. There will also be some online streaming events.

…With podcasting reaching an even bigger audience than before during the last eighteen months, this is a chance for the podcasting community – both the creators and the listeners – to come together and celebrate this unique event. Taking place at Kings Place London in front of a live audience, the London Podcast Festival offers listeners the chance to be in the crowd for special live editions of the shows that have got them through this difficult time, meet the hosts and discover their next favorites.

The first batch of events have gone on sale. You can book tickets through the London Podcast Festival website. Some of the events have already been sold out.
