CMU Daily reports that Greenpeace will set up a recording studio – made out of wood and straw – at the Glastonbury Festival this year and will encourage all sorts of artist to record songs about the environmental and economic issues that are affecting the world right now. Greenpeace said “We’re calling for left-field artists, musicians and writers; everyone who opposes environmental destruction, exploitation, corruption, manipulation and fraud – the things that have become staple fodder of the increasingly half-baked media reports we routinely ignore. Raising Voices aims to use the uniquely positive atmosphere that is Glastonbury to build momentum around the protest song”.
The eco-group has teamed up with producer Joe Leach of Cowshed Studio London to create the temporary recording space, and a video feed from inside it will allow festival goers to see what is going on. Any artists or labels interested in getting involved should email firstname.lastname@example.org
