Paul Oakenfold

July 22
5:00 PM
Annenberg Space for Photography: Los Angeles

Event Overview

Paul Oakenfold has had a busy year. The superstar DJ, affectionately known as “Oakey,” is, inarguably the man for whom the term “superstar DJ” was coined. For 30 years, the three-time Grammy nominee has been breaking ground in electronic dance music, from opening for U2 and Madonna to starting the first DJ residency in Las Vegas. This year he played a show on Mount Everest, part of his Generations World Tour and SoundTrek series, which has raised money and awareness for various environmental causes. Before Oakey gets immersed in his annual Electronic Music Awards, which he’s readying for the fall, he brings his trance-infused sounds, updated to fit today’s dance floors, to the delightful rolling lawns of the Annenberg Space for Photography’s Sound in Focus concert series.
