What’s it all about?

Sex & Bugs & Rock ‘n Roll brings environmental science to music festivals.

We’re a team of enthusiastic researchers who want to share our fascination for the natural world and make science accessible to everyone. We think scientists should be more approachable and we also love music – so where better to have a bit of fun with science than at music festivals?

Science is all about curiosity, so we do our best to recreate that spirit by turning interesting research into entertaining activities. Anyone can drop by our stall to chat, ask questions, or just take a look around and try their hand at a game or two.

To get a good idea of what we’re about, take a look at our YouTube video from Wychwood Festival 2013.

Although planned as a one-off event to celebrate the Centenary of the BritishEcological Society in 2013, Sex & Bugs & Rock ‘n Roll has been such a huge success that we continue to tour UK music festivals with our stall – complete with a live colony of bumblebees!

We’ve got lots of new busks and activities lined up for 2019, so keep an eye on our blog and watch out for us at a festival near you!
