Brian Eno has been announced as special guest for the UK’s leading Green and music conference. He will be in conversation with Norwegian singer-songwriter AURORA to discuss the worsening climate crisis and debate how music’s energy can be used to benefit the planet.
Other key guests at the event include LTW boss John Robb, Ecotricty boss Dale Vince, the conference boss and leading green thinker Claire O’Neill and many others.
The event will take place at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London, on April 29th and will form part of the 14th edition of the Green Events & Innovations Conference (GEI).

Eno’s talk will explore the connection between wellbeing, inclusivity, diversity, equity and environmental sustainability and how the music industry, in particular, can make changes for the better.
Eno recently founded the charitable organisation Earth Percent which gives musicians a simple way to support the ongoing climate change mitigation efforts. The organisation facilitates artists who want to donate one per cent of the profits from their live performances towards climate change organisations.
