Into the Wild Festival news: Chris Packham warns of ‘ecological apocalypse’ in Britain

Latest update from Into the Wild

“Nature reserves are becoming natural art installations,” he said. “It’s just like looking at your favourite Constable or Rothko.


We go there, muse over it, and feel good because we’ve seen a bittern or some avocets or orchids. But on the journey home there’s nothing – only wood pigeons and non-native pheasants and dead badgers on the side of the road.

“It’s catastrophic and that’s what we’ve forgotten – our generation is presiding over an ecological apocalypse and we’ve somehow or other normalised it.” chris packham

🌱 We handed the ever-brilliant courtney barnett the keys to our Spotify ahead of #EOTR2019, and she dealt up a perfect EOTR-tinged playlist. Re-visit it at buff.ly/3669P70

🌱 Now that we're surrounded by settled dust (and colder days) our collective attention begins to turn to #EOTR2020. We were lucky enough to be joined by four incredible headline acts this year, but who's sitting atop your wish list for 2020?

Kurt vile aldous Harding weyes blood low thee oh sees spiritualized pavement

Caribou

angel olsen, swans, and pavement (pls)

PJ Harvey

Get Nick Lowe on the garden stage. His current work stands just as high as his more popular work. A strong live entertainer and an end and unending wit to boot.

Any of Angel Olsen, Ride, MBV or King Gizz would be some amazing and suitable EOTR headliners.

Conor Oberst (preferably with the rumoured reforming Bright Eyes), IDLES, War on Drugs, PJ Harvey, Kevin Morby, Wolf Alice, Sharon Van Etten and in the never gonna happen, Nick Cave and a reformed just for EOTR Neutral Milk Hotel.

swans, angel olsen, david byrne, death grips, shellac, fka twigs, ought, sleater kinney, u.s. girls, skee mask, hailu mergia!

The algiers

Could do with being stronger than this year - first one I’ve missed for years based solely on the line up.

Ghost Office Joe Gilson

Camera Obscura.

John Murry.

Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, Caroline Polachek, Holiday Sidewinder, Weyes Blood, Bat For Lashes, Hatchie, Kelsey Lu - any of these would be wonderful!

There is many mentioning Angel Olsen and Nick Cave, I agree with those. I would also like to see Big Thief in the garden and Sharon van Etten.

Aldous Harding, Floating Points, Maria Sommerville, John Maus, Bill Callahan (even though he did it two years ago).

Nick Cave, Mazzy Star, Supergrass
