This year’s host will be Edith Bowman, an award-winning radio broadcaster, podcast host and television presenter.  Her broadcasting career has flourished over more than two decades and now she is one of the most well-respected and sought after personalities in the film, television, and audio industry.  

Her radio work has spanned all the major stations, presenting shows on BBC Radio 1, 2, 6 and 5Live as well as Virgin Radio.  As a TV host she has fronted a versatile mix of shows for BBC, Channel 4, Sky Arts, and MTV.  

In 2023 Edith took the reins as co-presenter on Coast to Coast: Food Festival, a show celebrating all things food, farming, and countryside, with fellow hosts Colin Murray and Sean Fletcher. She can be heard on Radio 2 regularly filling in for Jo Whiley and has her own specials on the network including Music Therapy.

From hosting music festival coverage, Life Cinematic for BBC4, the 2021 BAFTA Film Awards for BBC1, the BAFTA Scotland Awards and Hogmanay celebrations for BBC Scotland, to presenting dozens of movie premieres, Edith has incorporated her genuine passion for, and in-depth knowledge of, music and film into her work.

Her own podcast, the ARIA & New York Festivals Radio Award Winning Soundtracking with Edith Bowman, allows her to combine these two loves and has become the go-to music and film podcast where you can hear Edith talk to directors, producers, actors, writers and composers about their relationship with music both professionally and personally.
