RTÉ 2XM is a digital radio station of the Irish public-service broadcaster Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ). RTÉ 2XM is a sister station to RTÉ 2fm and focuses on alternative and indie music. On 6 November 2019, RTÉ management announced that, as part of a major cost-saving program, all its digital radio stations would be closed, including RTÉ 2XM.[1]


Initially RTÉ placed the station on the digital terrestrial television trial service in late October 2007. Along with five other new digital stations, RTÉ 2XM was launched on 1 December 2008.[2] The station plays a broad range of music from rock, indie, metal, electronica, alternative and nu metal and also selection of live music with a particular focus on music content from festivals across Europe. It was the first RTÉ digital radio station to have carried live content, with music from the Oxegen festival during July 2007 and the Electric Picnic and PlanetLove Summer Session festivals during September 2007. This continued in 2008 with the PlanetLove Winter Session in February. The station is available on Saorview Ireland's free to air DTT service.


2XM WebTV debuted online during the RTÉ coverage of the Oxegen 2008 music festival on weekend of 11–14 July 2008[3]


Garageland is a weekly radio show broadcast on RTE 2XM Mondays from 8pm. The show is hosted by Dermot Lambert of the band Blink. The radio show brings listeners closer to the Irish music scene, and features music and interviews with bands from around Ireland.[4]
