Rebel Radio broadcasted live alongside Extinction Rebellion on our Culture channel.


Broadcasting live from Soho Radio and XR sites around the world, Rebel Radio is a pop-up station with unique access to the inside story of Extinction Rebellion. Rebel Radio will proactively set the news agenda for the duration of Extinction Rebellion’s most ambitious protest yet. Driven by daring and curious voices, Rebel Radio expands the cultural conversation around the climate and ecological crisis. The schedule is pegged around two key news shows at the start and end of the day. Wake up to business not as usual with GMXR (Good Morning Extinction Rebellion), a debrief from leading campaigners. We gather updates from around London and the world, with key XR insiders digesting the news and reflecting on what happened the day before. Don’t Drive Time broadens the conversation into the evening, bringing new perspectives from the frontline of the emergency. Broadcaster and journalist Kate Hutchinson interviews very special guests and introduces the human stories propelling the movement forward. As dusk falls, the show will cut live to moments of drama and inspiration on XR stages, with speeches and music book ended by reaction.

Rebel Radio is proud to present Not Too Late, an exploration of how radical music and the crisis interlink. Presented by a stellar team of cultural thinkers, DJs and forward-thinking musicians – including Josie Long, Zakia Sewell and Max Reinhardt – and the talented production team from Reduced Listening, Not Too Late offers respite in the face of emergency. Rebel Radio during International Rebellion will be your first port of call to hear from luminaries on the ground and in the media. Join the rebellion, just by tuning in. The time is now.
