Ever dreamt of being marooned on an island with music legends, renowned chefs and bottles and bottles of Champagne…
Sounds pretty great to us! Krug Champagne has announced a partnership with music legend Mick Jones and maverick chef of the moment, Michael O’Hare. Joining forces to create an unforgettable journey with a variety of performances from leading music names, the 1st September will see Osea Island transformed into – Krug Island!
Legendary icon and musician, Mick Jones (The Clash, Big Audio Dynamite) is curating the musical experience for the event. Parallels can be seen in the manner in which both Maison Krug and Mick Jones adopt a process of meticulous creativity in their work. Eric Lebel, Krug’s Chef de Cave selects from more than 120 different wines to recreate the exquisite blend of Grande Cuvée year after year. Similarly, Mick Jones will work with a mix of leading and emerging names in the UK music scene, ending the night with a live jamming session in which all artists will come together to create an extraordinary moment of different sounds and styles.
‘I would like to thank Krug and everyone involved in giving us this opportunity to make some great music in a unique location,’ commented Mick Jones.
The mastermind behind the culinary delights available on Krug Island will be disruptive chef Michael O’Hare, famous for his Michelin starred, avant garde restaurant, ‘The Man Behind the Curtain,’ located in Leeds. His theatrical approach to food and gastronomy will add another layer to this unforgettable experience and his approach sits perfectly alongside Krug and Mick Jones.
Krug Island will encapsulate the famed music history and creativity that is the essence of Osea Island, where the event will take place. The iconic music heritage site boasts four square miles of unspoilt landscapes, beaches, fields and gardens and has previously hosted recording artists that include Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac), George Ezra, Labrinth, Noah and the Whale and Jessie J.
With transport provided from London, guests will be welcomed onto Krug Island to spend the evening immersed in a diverse range of musical experiences, each curated to complement the impressive Krug portfolio at different locations across the island. With access to Osea only possible for an hour each day at dawn and dusk, guests will be fully isolated to truly immerse themselves in a sensory celebration of food, music and Champagne.
