Above & Beyond teams with Cercle for a historical live-streamed concert from Piedra del Peñol in Colombia’s Andes Mountains.
On Monday, December 13th, UK superstars Above & Beyond will be playing live from Piedra del Peñol in Guatape, Colombia. This historical show is produced and broadcasted live by Cercle, in collaboration with ProColumbia and Medellin Travel.
Above & Beyond’s performance marks Cercle’s first show in Colombia, with the first concert on top of the “Piedra del Peñol” in the Andes Mountains. Piedra del Peñol is a 240 meters (787 feet) high granite monolith with a magnificent view of the valley of Guatape. Above & Beyond will perform at the top of Piedra del Peñol, an elevation of 2135 meters (over 7,000 feet) above sea level. This national monument is only climbable via 740 stairs built inside a crack.
Along the performance, Above & Beyond will be filmed from all angles by several cameras and drones. The concert will be broadcast live on Cercle’s Facebook and Twitch pages, and also on Oculus. The live performance will be followed by an interview with Above & Beyond where the online audience will be able to ask their questions.
Above & Beyond has been at the forefront of electronic dance music for two decades. Founders of two record labels (Anjunadeep & Anjunabeats) and hosts of a weekly radio show, that reaches millions of dance lovers every Friday (Group Therapy), they have earned two GRAMMY™ nominations. Described by UK music bible Q Magazine as “the world’s biggest cult band”, Above & Beyond‘s enviable list of sold-out shows includes headline performances at historic venues like New York City’s Madison Square Garden, The Hollywood Bowl, and The Sydney Opera House, to name a few.
Songwriters first, producers second, Above & Beyond’s unwavering commitment to their craft has fuelled an amazing career: four acclaimed studio albums, 14 compilation albums, two ‘acoustic’ albums, and a stand-alone album for yoga and meditation.
