About Time: You Went on a Musical Adventure with Krug Champagne and Jools HollandBy Iona Goulder
Krug Champagne know how to throw an experience. And their latest one-off boozy musical bonanza is no exception (make sure you’re free on 31st August). Their series of events ‘Krug Encounters’ take place around the world in unique locations that always promises to awe and inspire. This year, Krug Encounter sees the legendary Jools Holland and Luke Robinson, of Evelyn’s Table, at its helm for the special ‘Tracks on Tracks’ experience.

‘Tracks on Tracks’ has three power moves: music, free-flowing Krug Champagne and incredible food. In 2016, Krug took over Osea Island for a night of wonder, curated by The Clash’s Mick Jones and rock’n’roll Michelin star chef, Michael O’Hare. This followed last year with the eccentric partnership of acclaimed Argentinian chef Francis Mallmann with live acoustic sessions from Mahogany.
Krug Champagne x Jools Holland: What to Expect
On Friday (31st August), Krug Encounters – Tracks on Tracks promises to be as unexpected and original as the last. Departing from London Victoria, guests will travel on a private luxury train cutting across the English countryside before stopping at three private platforms for a series of exclusive musical performances. Each act has been hand selected by Jools Holland as part of a curated musical journey amplified by Krug Champagnes, and in celebration of Krug Grande Cuvée 166ème Édition.
Renowned for the seismic impact he has had on the UK and global music scene, as well as being a train enthusiast himself, Krug conductor Jools Holland has carefully selected three performers that embody the emotional belonging and sense of family, intrinsic to Maison Krug and all Krug lovers.
