Peter GabrielThe cast list at the World Economic Forum in Davos is by no means restricted to business leaders and top economists.

Actors and musicians are grabbing their share of the limelight to voice their opinions on the environment and technological change.

Oscar nominee Leonardo DiCaprio gave a dressing down to the oil companies in a speech on climate change, while those lining up at the Alpine resort today include former Genesis frontman Peter Gabriel who will discuss “creative disruption” with Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.

Actor Kevin Spacey also features in a session tonight.
