About RTÉ 2XM

Listen to the online radio of RTÉ 2XM live, which officially launced in 2008 as digitally distributed music radio, in the ownership of Raidió Teilifís Éireann which is Ireland’s National Public Service Broadcaster.
RTÉ 2XM is the sister station of RTÉ 2FM, and operates as the alternative expansion adjutant of 2FM as its programme structure is very similar, so the music is above everything else, but 2XM’s playlist leaves the mainstream and embraces the alternative flows of music. This way the most various and exotic genres diversify the music palette like rock, indie, alternative, electronica, nu metal and also some soul, hip-hop, rap, house, electronic music, pop-punk, hardcore and even more fascinating genres and styles are aired - the main rule here is to be different than the general assembly-line music.
RTÉ 2XM’s schedule has programmes which cover festivals of it’s preferred music genres across Europe, and even supports rookie Irish bands by introducing them to the listeners by interviews and by airing their music.

RTÉ 2XM 's slogan: “Just Good Music”
