This is Low Power, D.I.Y. radio. You know we built everything ourselves. I mean I had to drive all the way up to San Fierro for some of these parts. Little radio store up there run by this loser. Real loser, total zero(sic). And THE most annoying voice I've ever heard. And I was thinking the drive up there was the worst part of that mission, but, actually... dealing with that guy and the annoying shit he made me do? I mean it was just.. there were these pl-
All right, umm uh Where was I? Uh.. Oh yeah.
This is Kult 99.1 beach radio. Let's play another song
— DJ Zachary

Kult FM 99.1 (also referred to as K.U.L.T. 99.1 FM and Vespucci Beach Low Power Radio on its logo) is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto Online added in The Cayo Perico Heist update on December 15, 2020. The station is hosted by Julian Casablancas, lead singer for The Strokes and The Voidz rock bands.

Description

Tune in, turn on and space out to the sounds of Kult FM, hosted by Julian Casablancas of The Strokes and The Voidz. The guestlist is star-studded, with appearances from Mac DeMarco, David Cross and Tony Mac, and the station’s playlist spans from the Madchester sounds of Joy Division, New Order and A Certain Ratio to heavy throwbacks from Danzig, the Velvet Underground and Iggy Pop, and everything in between, plus the world exclusive premiere of a new track from The Voidz called “Alien Crime Lord.”

The station broadcasts from Julian Casablancas' basement in Vespucci Beach. Despite the logo claiming it is a low power radio station, it can be heard throughout southern San Andreas. While it is advertised as being hosted by Julian Casablancas, most of the continuity on the station is provided by his producer, Zachary, portrayed by David Cross, who makes regular reference to Julian's absence, and his own previous role in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as Zero.

Kult FM's content largely focuses on post-punk and experimental rock, but ranges from a wide range of genres such as hip hop, industrial rock, art rock, gothic rock, indie rock, garage rock, new wave, dub, power pop, alternative dance, soul, and traditional pop. The playlist makes it one of the most diverse, genre-independent stations to appear in the series.

Mac DeMarco intermittently provides horoscope readings and some songs are announced using a computer synthesized voice, similarly to The Journey.
