Sounds Like A Plan / 'COP26' – with Enter Shikari's Rou Reynolds

Listen on

Episode notes

Welcome to a very special episode of Sounds Like A Plan recorded in Glasgow during the UN’s historic COP26 climate summit.

Outside of the official climate negotiations, the city has been buzzing with activity – and music has had a significant presence. 

Hosts Fay Milton and Greg Cochrane chat about all the music action and gigs from the first week at COP26, plus their experiences of witnessing world leaders attending the 'Blue Zone' right through to Greta Thunberg's address at the Fridays For Future protest. 

Enter Shikari were one of those gigs, in Glasgow for two night's supporting Music Declares Emergency's #NoMusicOnADeadPlanet. Singer Rou Reynolds joined the podcast to discuss his COP26 experience, his band's history of bringing climate action into their art and the response of their peers. 

Sounds Like A Plan series 2 is supported by Festival Republic. They put on festivals including the legendary Leeds Festival, being held at Bramham Park, Leeds on August 26-28th 2022. Weekend tickets are available now:
