Above & Beyond Teams With CERCLE For a Historical Live-Streamed Concert From Piedra del Peñol in Colombia’s Andes Mountains
Get ready for a great holiday present from Above & Beyond! No matter what you celebrate, Above & Beyond is giving you a great gift! On Monday, December 13th, 2021 at 5 pm ET / 10 pm GMT, Above & Beyond will be playing live from Piedra del Peñol in Guatape, Colombia. This will be a legendary event as this historical show is produced and broadcasted live by Cercle, in collaboration with ProColumbia and Medellin Travel. Look at the wonder!!
This landmark performance by A & B will be Cercle’s first show in Colombia. In addition, this event will be 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. It is absolutely breathtaking! Above & Beyond will perform at the top of Piedra del Peñol, an elevation of 2135 meters (over 7,000 feet) above sea level. And it’ll be no easy feat, either. They’ll only be able to get there by climbing 740 stairs built inside a crack.
You can expect amazing things from this event. Along with the performance, Above & Beyond will be filmed from all angles by several cameras and drones. Anyone can join in on the magic as it will be broadcast live on Cercle’s Facebook and Twitch pages, and also on Oculus. Then- it’s bonus time! The live performance will be followed by an interview with Above & Beyond where the online audience will be able to ask their questions.
We all are familiar with Above & Beyond.
They have been at the forefront of electronic dance music for two decades. They’ve founded two record labels (Anjunadeep & Anjunabeats) and hosts of a weekly radio show that I’m sure you’re all familiar with! Group Therapy reaches millions of dance lovers every Friday and the group has earned two GRAMMY™ nominations. UK music bible Q Magazine has described the group as “the world’s biggest cult band”. You can catch them at an 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.
A & B pride themselves on being songwriters first, producers second. Their 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. What’s your favorite track?

Every two Mondays, one artist plays for 1 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, or even under the northern lights in Finland. This will be a landmark event in Columbia!
