Today was a big one for British DJ Paul Oakenfold, who just performed at Mount Everest’s Base Camp. Really. He dubbed the occasion “the highest party on Earth,” as he was the first DJ to perform at the 17,600-ft. location, a press release notes. The show was chronicled for a forthcoming live album and documentary. Oakenfold says the SoundTrek journey was planned for two years, and in the process, money was raised for charities including the Himalayan Trust, Youth Music, Mayor’s Music Fund, and Supporting Nepal’s Children. He’s also announced that he’ll donate DJ equipment to “the local community.” Find footage from the performance below.
