Sony Music-backed promoter Senbla has launched On The Mount, a series of outdoor concerts that will take place at the Wasing Estate in Berkshire this summer.
Taking place from 22 June – 2 July at the venue’s amphitheatre The Mount, the series will feature shows by artists including Primal Scream, Jack Johnson, Ben Howard and Sigur Ros, with more still to be announced.
Wasing currently hosts Medicine Festival (cap. 600), a remedial event experience that has a focus on sustainability. The estate previously hosted the Glade dance music festival (5,500) from 2004-2012.
On The Mount curators John Empson and Ollie Rosenblatt of Senbla said, “We’re delighted to bring such a diverse and wonderful line-up to the inaugural year of On The Mount, with artists that match the beauty and spectacular nature of The Mount at Wasing. We can’t wait for audiences to really experience something different on these summer evenings beneath the stars and surrounded by the woodland.”
Wasing Estate CEO Andrew Perkins said, “Nature is the cornerstone for everything and as a linchpin between people and planet, Wasing connects heart and soul with the extraordinary ecological world around us. We are exceptionally excited to launch The Mount, bringing audiences and artists together to harmonise in nature and community through restorative musical experiences.
“We are equally thrilled to announce our partnership with Senbla to deliver an unforgettable line-up of outstanding artists and trailblazing creative entertainment, alongside Wasing’s very own unique & culturally diverse launch event; a cutting-edge curation celebrating revitalising indigenous, world & contemporary music.”
