Trance DJ Paul Oakenfold to become the first-ever artist to perform at Stonehenge in England
For the first time, a concert is going to take place at Stonehenge. Grammy-nominated trance DJ, Paul Oakenfold will become the first artiste to perform at the English neolithic site.
According to reports from a news website, only 50 people will be invited to the intimate concert that is set to take place at sunset. Held this September, the event will also be recorded for his new album, titled Live at Stonehenge. This will follow 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.
In a statement given to the website, Oakenfold said, “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.”
Oakenfold is an English record producer and trance DJ who began his career in 1980. He’s been nominated for two Grammy awards and has three studio albums. In addition, he’s provided remixes for a number of artists including Madonna, Britney Spears, U2, and The Rolling Stones, among others.
