Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull, Sting, Stone Temple Pilots, and more are set to headline the very first Atlantis Concert for Earth, which is set to take place in an ancient volcanic crater this July.

The nonprofit concert and global conservation celebration will be held on the weekend of July 22nd and 23rd from the Azores Islands, Portugal. It’s taking place in Sete Cidades, a natural amphitheater venue, nestled along two lakes inside an ancient volcano crater. With breathtaking 360-degree views, Atlantis Concert for Earth is the only concert on the planet with a location as visually stunning as this ecologically rich setting.

The special event will feature performances, both live and virtual, from several iconic artists: alongside the aforementioned acts, Sting will provide a virtual set, while Nicole Scherzinger will pull double duties as host and performer.

The real stars of the show, however, are the featured organisations doing their bit to help conserve the earth, including Re:wild, Sea Legacy, Blue Azores, The Ocean Cleanup, and many more.

“Nature is the true headliner at the Atlantis Concert for the Earth,” will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas said. “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.”

“Biodiversity, from wildlife to ecosystems, underpins the existence of life on Earth,” added Wes Sechrest, chief scientist and CEO of Re:wild. “We are excited to be a part of Concert for Earth, a celebration of the symphony of life on our unique planet and an invitation to come together to protect and restore nature for the benefit of biodiversity, the climate, and all of us.”

In-person tickets are available to those local to the Azores area here, but select artist performances will also be live-streamed globally for free on Saturday, July 23rd via Veeps. Viewers can access the content on Veeps.com or via the Veeps app on Apple TV, Roku, iOS, and Android.

During the livestream, there will be a ‘Click to Donate’ option, with 100% of donations going directly to supporting the inspirational, solution-driven work of the festival’s conservation partners.
