Festivals in Lockdown

An important part of our project is to bring issues to the fore and debate, discuss and exchange knowledge and ideas. We’re happy to launch our new podcast series where we will do just that! Our second episode looks at music festivals during lockdown.

Don’t hesitate to share it and comment – and please bear with us as we take our first steps in the wonderful world of podcasting!


In episode two we focus on music festivals, the space they create for recreational drug use and the potential blueprint they offer for harm reduction. This time Eve is in the hot seat explaining why festivals have been the focus for her research and her newest project, Festivals in Lockdown.

Eve Buck-Matthews and her colleagues are also conducting a research project on this topic. If you’d like to get involved, you can do so here.

Without further ado, here’s episode two!
