The Hive, the Royal Botanic Gardens' stunning 17-metre-tall aluminium ode to our insect helpers, is set to host a series of intimate evening concerts with a difference.
For the first time, BE will perform their album ONE - a unique collaboration between mankind and bees - at its spiritual home.
Members of the experimental rock group Spiritualized were among the two-legged artists who teamed up with a colony of 40,000 bees to create a soundscape for the interactive sculpture.
They will play four evening gigs at the very special setting, amid a galaxy of LED lights flickering under the night sky in response to activity levels within a real beehive.
Adding to the symphony will be 40,000 bees - though listeners need not worry as their contribution will be streamed live from a hive within Kew Gardens.
'We want the audience to be transported'
Amazing videos, including footage shot within a working beehive will be projected onto the wildflower meadow surrounding the towering sculpture.
The Hive's creator Wolfgang Buttress is very excited about the concerts, which he hopes will drive home our reliance on the stripy pollinators.
"The audience will be in the middle of this conversation between mankind and bees. We want them to be transported," he said.
"Wherever you are you will be surrounded by the sound - including the live stream from the bees coming from within Kew Gardens.
"These will be very intimate concerts, which will make the connection between humans and bees, showing how important they are for our survival."
