Wishing you were somewhere else during covid-19 quarantine? How about watching an amazing live set in a gorgeous scenic location? During these difficult times, we are all feeling the cabin fever. Luckily, YouTube has an awesome collection of incredible live sets in scenic locations.
Of course, CERCLE takes the lead for most videos with the best views, and we highly recommend checking out their entire catalog. But there are some other front runners as well. We mixed it up and factored in both scenic views and musical prowess for our selections.
Without further ado, we hope you enjoy this list of live sets with incredible scenery:
FKJ, Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
We had to put this one at the top of our list, after all, it is the set that inspired this journey. FKJ playing an exclusive live set in the world’s largest salt flat, Salar de Uyuni, for Cercle.
Watching FKJ play a live set is a treat in itself, but put him on a barge in the middle of a gorgeous salt flat during sunset? We are sold.
Above & Beyond: Group Therapy 350, Prague
Above & Beyond always knows how to put their fans in the feels. This is an incredible, intimate warm-up before their headlining set at Group Therapy 350 in Prague. The views are amazing as they boat around the canal, you almost feel like you’re there.

Acid Pauli, Garni Temple, Armenia
This one is just jaw-dropping. A stone temple in the middle of the mountains?

Honey Dijon, Sugar Mountain, Australia

She definitely keeps the party running through Sugar Mountain in Melbourne, Australia.
Giolì & Assia – Vulcano, Aeolian Islands [Handpan Set]
This is an incredible, relaxing hand pan set shot from a volcano in the Aeolian Islands.
Get ready to be mesmerized by the hypnotic sounds of Giolì & Assia.
Jelly For The Babies, Kosmaj Monument, Serbia
Woo! We love this Jelly for the Babies set. Watch as he plays through the sunset and as the night arrives, the Kosmaj Monument in Serbia lights up in reaction.
JFTB takes us on a time-stopping progressive journey that will take you away.
Solomun, Théâtre Antique d’Orange, France
There’s just something that hits different about having a rave in a theatre that was built in 1st century AD.
Not to mention Solomun?! His talent at providing a musical journey combined with the natural ambiance of the Théâtre Antique d’Orange is an unforgettable experience.
minds&machines, TV Tower Iriški Venac, Serbia
We had to include this set from minds&machines for TIME:CODE. Whoa, that location though. Personally, we’d be terrified to be that high up (170 meters) in a big concrete structure.
Nevertheless, the outcome is 100% breathtaking.
Einmusik b2b Jonas Saalbach, Preikestolen, Norway
Cercle knows just how to pick those locations that no one could ever imagine setting up some CDJs and stage, but they’ve done it.
Check out Einmusik b2b Jonas Saalbach playing an exclusive live set at Preikestolen (Norway) and prepare to be amazed.
RÜFÜS DU SOL, Joshua Tree, California, USA
This is one of our favorite videos and sets. Rufus du Sol gives an unforgettable performance right in the middle of Joshua Tree, California.
This film is cinematically brilliant and truly gives the listener a front row to Rufus du Sol magic.
Fatboy Slim, British Airways i360, Brighton, United Kingdom
This whole video is definitely a vibe. Fatboy Slim DJs to an exclusive group 450 ft in the air and then as the sun sets they slowly lower the globe into a nighttime dance party.
To nobody’s surprise, Fatboy Slim crushes the musical selection. All-around amazing video.
