Stonehenge, the iconic stone structure located in rural England, has been drawing crowds to its beautiful mysteriousness for centuries. While scientists flock to the region in an attempt to understand its nature and purpose, tourists flock there just to check out what the structure is all about.
In the past, Stonehenge has been a place to hold festivals filled with music and dancing but never has anyone from the electronic dance music realm ever played at this World Heritage site; until now, that is. Legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold will make history this upcoming September by becoming the first ever DJ to play at Stonehenge. The purpose of this show is to raise money for the charity English Heritage which seeks to preserve nearly 400 heritage sites across England.
Paul Oakenfold is one of the most notable trance DJs from England; a three-time Grammy nominee, a two time World Music Award nominee and he was voted number 1 DJ by DJ Mag two years in a row in 1998 and 1999. Oakenfold has done over 100 remixes with as many artists and has three studio albums under his belt. It makes sense to have an artist of Oakenfold’s stature to play at such an iconic site as he, himself is iconic in the electronic dance music community.
Sadly, the show will only play to an audience of 50 people. However, the set will be recorded and streamed afterward for everyone to view. It’ll be titled Oakenfold Live At Stonehenge and we can’t wait to check that out!
