The Eden Project plays host to some of the greatest artists each year and a new partnership will breed that experience further.
The Eden Project has become famed for its series of summer concerts bringing acts like Bjork, Blondie, Motörhead, Flaming Lips, Queens of the Stone Age, Elton John, and so many more. The gorgeous setting and formidable stage has cemented Eden Sessions as a true highlight of live music in the UK’s corner of Cornwall.
Now the Eden team are joining forces with live music organisation AEG Presents to launch a new Eden Sessions company. Together they will continue to run the concerts, which have been running each year since 2002 with the impressive backdrop of their illuminated biomes.
Chief Executive of the Eden Project, Gordon Seabright said: “In 18 years, the Sessions have established an excellent reputation in the industry and with concert-goers. Our exciting new venture with AEG Presents teams Eden with the global leader in live music. It will give us more national and international reach and help us spread Eden’s missions even further.
“Eden boasts a unique amphitheatre surrounded by beautiful gardens and spectacular Biomes. We are proud that there is no venue like it anywhere in the world and we know that many artists cite shows they have played here as being among their best ever.”
AEG Presents’ two CEO’s, Steve Homer and Toby Leighton-Poper, added: “People use the word iconic a lot but the Eden Sessions fully deserves that description. They are innovative and the roll call of artists who have performed at Eden speaks for itself.
“They stand for quality as do we and we’re both dedicated to giving music fans a brilliant gig experience every time. This partnership is a big moment for us and we’re sure it will deliver great things.”
