Hopefully you’ll all know Skiddle sponsors the weekend over at our friends Unity Radio in Manchester, however this week we’ve gone that one step further, this week is the Skiddle.com Festival Finder Week on Unity Radio 92.8 FM.
So what’s Festival Finder Week all about? Recently Skiddle launched the most sophisticated festival search facility online and we thought it would be a good idea to let more people know about it and as it’s just about the start of festival season we thought what better way than to get the guys over at Unity to shout about it for us.
Northern Based Festivals
Monday to Thursday they’ve been concentrating on a Northern festival each day that’s on sale through Skiddle.com’s Festival Guide (which remains the UK’s busiest festival guide), on Monday it was the Wickerman, Tuesday it was Beat-Herder, Wednesday is was Kendall Calling and Thursday it’s Creamfields. On Friday they are going to be concentrating on Parklife which is taking place over the weekend.
As part of the Festival Finder Week, Unity have been talking to the festival promoters as well as artists that are playing there, they’ve also been getting their audience to take part in Skiddle’s Festival Karaoke – and we’ve supplied them with a couple of VIP tickets to Wickerman Festival for the winner of the Festival Karaoke competition.

Working with Unity Radio
We’ve been working with Unity Radio over the last couple of years and it’s great to have seen them grow so rapidly, they’ve developed a great audience and have impressively high levels of audience participation. Skiddle’s pleased to have been so involved with the development and in we are sure this relationship will continue to grow as the station and Skiddle does in the coming years.
