There are unique music venues and then there is the Atlantis Concert for Earth which will take place this weekend inside a volcano. The global fundraiser will feature performances on July 22-23 from Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull, Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, Nicole Scherzinger, Mod Sun, Girlfriends and more. It’s all happening at Sete Cidades, in Azores, Portugal, at an absolutely breathtaking amphitheater, nestled along two lakes inside an ancient volcano crater.
Sting is also scheduled to show up with a special virtual performance, and speaking of virtual, the global conservation celebration will be livestreamed on Saturday, July 23rd for FREE via VEEPS.
“Nature is the true headliner at the Atlantis Concert for the Earth,” said will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas. “It is a surreal other-worldly experience to perform on the rim of an extinct volcanic crater to celebrate the Rockstars of Conservation while using music as a megaphone to call attention to the need for global conservation.”
Atlantis Entertainment CEO and co-founder Nuno Bettencourt, who conceptualized the event describes the event like this: “These days, words Climate and Climate Crisis trigger so many different emotions from all walks of life,” said Bettencourt, who has been working for over a decade to bring Concert For Earth to fruition. “It shouldn’t matter who you voted for, we don’t judge what your political color is internationally or, here in the U.S. if you are Republican, Democrat, Black, white, Hispanic, rich or poor. Because whatever we are, whether we like it or not, we share the same air, the same water and the same soil. We have all heard about the urgency, but fear is not the answer. Instead, together during Concert for Earth we are taking our universal language and power of music to celebrate the Conservationists and Entrepreneurs from around the world who are game changers leading the way with real, tangible solutions to flip the current narrative of climate and conservation from blame, anger, and doom; to positivity and hope by shining a light on inspirational SOLUTIONS to get us back in balance with our planet. It’s time to stop telling everyone how we are all going to die, but instead show them how we’re all going to live.”
