After playing at Mount Everest’s Base Camp while facing those freezing winds and mixed at the top of the mighty Great Wall of China, now Paul Oakenfold is ready to play at one of the world’s most famous manmade wonders: the Stonehenge.
Paul Oakenfold is one of the most famous DJ/producers in the trance scene who is becoming the first DJ to perform a sunset set at the prehistoric monument. The whole performance is going to be recorded and will be released as an album called ‘Live at Stonehenge’.
The event will happen in September, but we are still waiting for the official date. It’s a invitation-only event for an audience of just 50 hand-picked guests.
Oakenfold says: “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.”
All of the profits raised from the show will go to English Heritage, a registered charity that manages the National Heritage Collection. This comprises over 400 of England’s historic buildings, monuments and sites spanning more than 5,000 years of history.
