The event will be hosted by BBC’s Abbie McCarthy and will feature panels with special guests such as Earthrise CEO Alice Eady, fashion entrepreneur Samata Pattinson, and climate activists Dominique Palmer and Tori Tsui along with others.

Only 500 tickets will be going on sale to the public so for those who are not lucky enough to snag one, the event will be live-streamed globally on Eilish’s Official YouTube Channel in partnership with Mercury Studios.

Last year, Eilish hosted the first ever OVERHEATED event. It was a multi-day climate-focused event that took place at The O2 in London last June.

The event included a screening of the the Overheated documentary which featured appearances from YungbludGlastonbury‘s Emily Eavis and Girl In Red. In a four-star review of the documentary, NME shared: “It’s a project that recognises the magnitude and fragility of the moment – planetary heating looks set to soar above politically agreed targets – and holds a mirror up to our human response in all its see-sawing fear and encouragement. For those expecting a film about Billie Eilish’s climate activism, it’s not. She’s done something far more unselfish and effective, handing over her considerable spotlight to a collection of voices that, while fully acknowledging the perilous circumstance, combine as one to say: we can’t be defeated.”

In other news, the singer recently dedicated her performance of ‘Never Felt So Alone’ to late the Euphoria star, Angus Cloud while at Lollapalooza. 

The track comes from her recent collaboration with Labrinth, and features prominently on the latest season of Euphoria. At her festival set, she told the crowd: “R.I.P. to Angus Cloud, everybody”, after finishing the rendition.
