Somewhere To Believe In

All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey... and we’re back for the second series of Somewhere To Believe In, a podcast by the people who bring you Greenbelt Festival.

Each week we’ll meet brilliant guests and chat to them about their life and work. We want to bring you timely, provocative and funny dollops of hopefulness, to keep us all going in these strange times. This time around we’re celebrating artists that we love and we know you’ll love them too.


We’ll also be digging into our love of fields, festivals and communal gatherings – remember those? – and sharing some of the behind-the-scenes Greenbelt stuff. Importantly, too, we want to hear from YOU, whether you’ve danced in a field with us or not.


Our plan is to release this second series of eight episodes in the run-up to Christmas – with a new episode coming out each Friday. We’ve called it ‘Somewhere to Believe in’, because maybe more than ever, we all need that right now. We really hope you like it.

Paul Northup

Paul has variously been a musician in a touring band; a theology student; a copywriter; a dad to four boys who were – at one time – all under three and a half years old; husband to artist and designer Chantal; Creative Director of his favourite festival in the whole world, Greenbelt; and, most recently, a sustainable house-builder. (He's also mildly obsessed with distance running.)

Katherine has worked within the arts industry in various roles for 13 years. With passion and experience in both the arts and music sector, she joined Greenbelt in 2014 and has been working on booking the programme ever since. Katherine is on the board of the Association of Independent Festivals and a vocal advocate for keeping a strong, independent arts sector alive in the UK. Her other passions include wearing great hats.
