Stonehenge, one of the world’s most famous and spectacular monuments played host to a unique world first experience when Paul Oakenfold performed a full sunset set besides the stone circle.

The world famous DJ, recording artist, producer and UK house music pioneer was invited to perform by Alon Shulman, MD at Universe, and given the honour of being the first ever DJ to play at the sacred site in Wiltshire.

Having the opportunity to play at the site, built 5,000 years ago, has been a “privilege” said Oakenfold for the experience. “I am so lucky to be able to share my music from such an iconic site.  The energy here is like nowhere else on earth, and this is reflected in my music. Despite having performed at incredible events and locations all across the globe, sunset at Stonehenge is by far THE most magical moment to have the privilege to experience.”

Oakenfold and Universe recorded their new album ‘Live at Stonehenge’ creating a ‘first of its kind experience’ for those 50 guests lucky enough to be a part of this moment in music history.

The event, conceived and produced by Alon Shulman, is part of his new ‘Origins’ concept that incorporates music, film and performance alongside incredible production. Shulman, commenting on the event, “Together, Paul and I wanted to create something completely unique.  Being known for our ground-breaking performances and collaborations it is fitting that our first special moment takes place at Stonehenge”.

“Alon makes the impossible possible” says Oakenfold “and his understanding and respect for the site is what has made this show so perfect”. The guests were treated to a surprise celebration of Paul’s world’s first when Paul was then joined in front of the stones for a full back to back set with the legendary Carl Cox.

As the custodians of Stonehenge, English Heritage cares for many of England’s most important landmarks. “We’ve been working very closely with Alon Shulman and the team at Universe on a number of innovative projects in support of English Heritage and the incredible collection of sites in our care” says English Heritage’s Director of Development Luke Purser. “We’re delighted with Paul’s enthusiasm for our work and that he has embraced the uniqueness of this site where he will be recorded his new album, and that proceeds from which will go towards the charity".

It bolsters  the list of unusual locations that the DJ has played at including the Great Wall of China and Base Camp on Mount Everest.
