Legendary icon and musician, Mick Jones (The Clash, Big Audio Dynamite) is curating the musical experience for Krug Island. 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.” 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.

Krug historically aims to inextricably link the world of Krug to the world of music, from it’s founding in 1843 by Joseph Krug. He believed that the joy of savouring masterfully crafted Champagne is evokes a similar emotion to listening to a piece of music. Maison Krug is the dream of a man, Joseph Krug, to offer the very best Champagne every single year, regardless of climate annual variations. Since 1843, Krug is the only House to create only Prestige Champagnes every year and today, the House offers seven different Champagnes, all of the same level of distinction, each illustrating a particular expression of nature for unforgettable journeys.
