Panel 1

What We Do

Rare FM is UCL Union’s official student radio station, broadcasting online 24/7 from our Bloomsbury studio.
Founded in 1998, we are a student run and student led station, with shows ranging from music to politics to comedy.

We host nights throughout the year, including DJ sets at Ministry of Sound, our Launch Party, and our all day music festival Rare Fest. We work with venues across the capital to create the best nights possible. Rare FM also organises weekly socials for members to taste music from a range of genres throughout London.

We also have long standing working relationships with the educational charity IntoUniversity. Rare FM hosts ‘Buddy Days’ for children from underprivileged backgrounds to get an experience of university life. Check out their radio shows on our Mixcloud.

RareFM also has a music magazine, Under City Lights, which covers gigs, albums and interviews musicians from London and further afield.

Panel 2

Under City Lights

Under City Lights is a student publication based at UCL, updated regularly online and published in print twice a year. We aim to cover gigs, albums and interviews with bands from London and further afield.
