This September, there will be a concert at the English neolithic site known as Stonehenge, and no it won’t be a rock concert. Trance DJ Paul Oakenfold will become the first artist to perform at Stonehenge. As part of an intimate concert series, 50 people will be invited to the event, set to take place at sunset. The event will be recorded for his new album, titled Live at Stonehenge. This follows several past performances by Oakenfold at a number of out-of-the-ordinary locations, including the Great Wall of China and Mount Everest’s base camp.
“I am so lucky to be able to share my music from such an iconic site,” said Oakenfold. “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.”
