Music Declares Emergency: NO MUSIC ON A DEAD PLANET

NO MUSIC ON A DEAD PLANET, states exactly that. We wouldn’t be able to enjoy the simple pleasures of seeing a gig, if Earth had nothing to keep it spinning.

Intrigued to find out more? Lend your voice to the chorus and join the emergency.

1900 ARTISTS …

936 ORGANISATIONS …

718 INDIVIDUALS …

With the declaration now backed by that of 3,500 artists – including the likes of Thom Yorke, Sam Fender, Enter Shikari and Omar Lyefook behind the movement, an EMERGENCY has been DECLARED on the government to “act now” in order to reverse biodiversity loss and reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by no later than 2030.

While acknowledging the sheer impact music industry practices have on the environment, Music Declares has made an extra effort to work towards great systemic change to protect life on Earth.

Campaigns IN PLACE RIGHT NOW

NO EXCUSE FOR SINGLE USE – single-use plastic in venues and at festivals is no longer justifiable, and so a campaign has been made for just that. It seems that the examples of the world have shown its do-able, so its’ time for UK to do the same.

With the campaign trailblazing on all fronts – with support from popular artists, public donations and online community connectivity, NO MUSIC ON A DEAD PLANET is on its way to raise awareness high within the stature of Government, and hopefully soon, we can change Earth’s environment before its too late.

Let’s Talk: Are Music Videos Dead?
