On Monday, 13 December at 5pm ET / 10pm GMT, Above & Beyond will be playing live from Piedra del Peñol in Guatape, Colombia. The show is produced and broadcasted live by Cercle, in collaboration with ProColumbia and Medellin Travel. The group’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 view of the valley of Guatape and the group will perform at the top of it, 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.
Cercle is a French media organisation that produces experiences by organiding, filming and broadcasting concerts in carefully selected locations around the world. Its prime goal is to showcase cultural heritage and landmarks throughout the prism of electronic music and video. Every two Mondays, one artist plays for one hour in a unique setting, followed by a live interview. Events already happened in multiple venues like the Eiffel Tower, Chambord Castle in France, above Cappadocia in Turkey, and under the Northern Lights in Finland.
