June Ball Special with Sophie & Daniel

Tune in for the June Ball Live Special with Sophie & Daniel! Packed with all kinds of earful delights including the Naked Sessions and special guests!

The Society of Involuntary Dreamers is a radio show that gathers creative writers in and around the EUI and Florence and shares their stories with you. With quarantine’s long days of being at home maybe you finally took the time to write down all the stories that have been in the back of your mind, or this is a time when you use writing to somehow make sense of the situation.
We would love to hear all your stories and share them on Radio Cavolo, whether written now or years ago. Write an e-mail to radiocavolo@eui.eu to volunteer your contribution for a next episode. All languages are welcome!

Every party needs a DJ, or two. But three is better! For the June Ball Special, Radio Cavolo will be broadcasting three live DJ sets, from three different locations.

18:00-18:45 In-studio LIVE DJSET with DJ LION
Get ready for the first ever Studio liveset from the cabbage patch! It’s aperotime early today, so get ready to start your June Ball party. DJ LION rocks the decks to set the mood.

Was it Warhol who said that in the future we would all be DJs? Well, he had better be right, because life’s too short to dance to boring music. That, in a nutshell, was the reason DJ LION started his foray into the noble art of discjockeying. No stranger to dancefloors himself, he goes for swing over swank and seeks it across all genres.

 21:00-23:00 LIVE DJ SET with DJ Sandro from Roma

All the way from Roma, DJ Sandro, a.k.a one of our beloved Fiasco Team Members, will drop the pressure with a deep house and elektro set. Streaming from this beautiful balcony close to Via Veneto in Roma, Sandro will be celebrating the end of the lockdown with a small semi-legal social gathering.

23:00-01:00 LIVE DJSET with Pierre Obscuur – The Afterball

Pierre Obscuur will be on air and spinning beats of love at a secret living room in Florence. Tune in, get in the groove, share the vibe and dance the night away
