This coming Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23, an eclectic array of musical icons will join together both in person and virtually for the Atlantis Concert for Earth, a nonprofit concert and global conservation celebration that will be a pretty impressive visual spectacle.

Per a news release, the show will take place in Sete Cidades, in Azores, Portugal. The pristine venue is a natural amphitheater, nestled along two lakes inside an ancient volcano crater. With breathtaking 360-degree views, Atlantis Concert for Earth is the only concert for planet Earth with a location as visually stunning as this ecologically rich setting.

The Atlantis Concert for Earth is put on by Atlantis Entertainment — and specifically, CEO Nuno Bettencourt, a renowned and versatile guitarist/musician known for his catalog of music with Extreme, Rihanna, Robert Palmer, Perry Ferrell and Janet Jackson. Bettencourt, alongside co-founders Rene M. Rigal (a film/television/content producer), tech entrepreneur/philanthropist Steven Schuurman and music industry vet/booker Scott Igoe, put together a deep lineup of participating acts, including:

Black Eyed Peas
Stone Temple Pilots
Nicole Scherzinger
Mod Sun
and virtual performances from Sting and Queen + Adam Lambert

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

Bettencourt, who has been working for years to put something like this together, added:

“These days, words Climate and Climate Crisis trigger so many different emotions from all walks of life. It shouldn’t matter who you voted for, we don’t judge what your political color is internationally or, here in the U.S. if you are Republican, Democrat, Black, white, Hispanic, rich or poor. Because whatever we are, whether we like it or not, we share the same air, the same water and the same soil. We have all heard about the urgency, but fear is not the answer. Instead, together during Concert for Earth we are taking our universal language and power of music to celebrate the Conservationists and Entrepreneurs from around the world who are game changers leading the way with real, tangible solutions to flip the current narrative of climate and conservation from blame, anger, and doom; to positivity and hope by shining a light on inspirational SOLUTIONS to get us back in balance with our planet. It’s time to stop telling everyone how we are all going to die, but instead show them how we’re all going to live.”
