Last week, legendary British DJ Paul Oakenfold announced that he would be hosting “the highest party on earth” at Mount Everest’s base camp. The performance, which took place today, April 11, stood at over 17,000 feet above sea level and marked the first edition of his “SoundTrek” series, which will see the artist perform at a number of uniquely momentous venues internationally.
Coming just ahead of the North American leg of Oakenfold’s Generations world tour, the Everest performance was held as a benefit, with proceeds going to the Himalayan Trust and Supporting Nepal’s Children – two groups dedicated to helping surviving victims of the country’s 2015 earthquake. Reportedly, the DJ will donate his equipment from the show to the local community, and further proceeds will go toward British foundations Youth Music and the Mayor’s New Music Fund.
