Legendary producer Paul Oakenfold has been known to perform at some of the world’s most historic locations as of late, including Mount Everast and the Great Wall of China. Now, he will perform at yet another spectacular monument, Stonehenge. Oakenfold will be the first ever artist to play at the sacred stones site in Wiltshire, performing a full sunset set this September. Seeing this spectacle in person might be tough, however, as there will be an invited audience of 50 hand-picked guests.
The event was conceived and is produced by Alon Shulman, owner of Universe brand, as part of his new ‘Origins’ concept that incorporates music, film, performance “and much more”. “Together, Paul and I wanted to create something completely unique,” Shulman comments, “Having worked closely with English Heritage it is fitting that our first special moment takes place at Stonehenge”. Oakenfold stated, “I am so lucky to be able to share my music from such an iconic site. The energy there will be like nowhere else on earth, and this will be reflected in my music and performance. Despite having performed at incredible events and locations all across the globe, sunset at Stonehenge will be the most magical.”
The Stonehenge performance won’t be the last on the list of Paul Oakenfold’s unique performances. There are a number of special projects that are planned to take place over the next three years. Paul Oakenfold says, “Its Alon’s special relationships and his long-term vision that make the impossible possible. We’ll shortly be announcing our plans using amazing locations championing great artists and new music.”
If you aren’t one of the chosen 50 to attend this event, the set will be recorded as part of the new album “Live at Stonehenge”.
