What's our Story?
Radar used to be The Radar Festival. We were a real-world music video festival, celebrating the then new-wave of low budget director talent. Our first event was in 2007 and was held at London’s flagship Apple store (their first ever entertainment screening). The following year in 2008 the festival played at seven Apple flagship stores worldwide, plus London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts. .
Radar then moved online to become RadarMusicVideos and has since been dedicated to connecting labels, artists and directors to create good-looking, affordable music videos.
Who are we?
Caroline Bottomley started Radar. She used to be a club promoter at a fab 1500 capacity venue in Sheffield called the Leadmill. She promoted a pioneering House night (called"Rise"), voted best club outside London by iD Magazine and one of the best 5 clubs in the world by The Face. Before promoting club nights she put on popular arts events, much admired by the Arts Council, from theatre to dance to performance art. She got an MBA in Sheffield. After The Leadmill, she moved to London and worked in TV at the BBC, Keo Films, Wall to Wall, Cicada, Diverse etc etc. Eventually she set up Radar.
