Hibrido Radio participated in Music Freedom Day 2011 and 2012. This year we will do one day of debates and musicians and poets performances for the right to freely diffuse ideas, words, sounds and people in Bologna, Italy.

This year, poets also wanted to join Music Freedom Day. And of course Reda Zine will be with us.
