Two weeks ago, two giants of dance music made history at Stonehenge, as Carl Cox and Paul Oakenfold became the first DJs to ever play there.
The crowd was kept to an intimate 50 guests, as trance hero Oakenfold took sunset set duties before Cox joined him for a very special back-to-back set.
“I am so lucky to be able to share my music from such an iconic site,” Oakenfold said before the event. “The energy there will be like nowhere else on earth, and this will be reflected in my music and performance.”
In an interview with CNN, Oakenfold speaks about using the special show as a platform to raise awareness for the ancient and historic location, and talks about how lucky he feels to have played there.
All proceeds raised from the event, which was hosted by Tribal Gathering festival brand Universe, will be donated to the English Heritage foundation. Oakenfold’s set was recorded and is set to be released as a Live At Stonehenge album.
