Sounds Like A Plan / 'Nightlife' – with Clean Scene's Eilidh McLaughlin

Listen on

Episode notes

In this final episode of series 2 of Sounds Like A Plan we're talking DJs, clubbing and dance music.

Our guest is Eilidh McLaughlin co-founder of Clean Scene – a collective set-up to alternative pathways for dance music community in the face of the climate emergency. They published a report, Last Night A DJ Took A Flight, in 2021 which highlighted some of the environmentally damaging cultures and practices (e.g. a popular DJ flying between multiple countries in a weekend), and presented a series of solutions. 

Here, Eilidh discusses the reactions to their work, and reflects on the experience of working with Stop Climate Chaos Scotland in Glasgow at COP26 in November. 

And before the series is wrapped up, hosts Fay Milton and Greg Cochrane will also leave you with some recommendations.

Sounds Like A Plan series 2 is supported by Festival Republic. They put on festivals including the legendary Isle of Wight festival, that will take place 16-19 June, 2022, near Newport, Isle of Wight. Weekend and day tickets are on sale now:
