WATCH: Paul Oakenfold DJ the “Highest Party In The World”
Last week it was announced that legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold would take the epic trek up the Earth’s highest peak, Mt. Everest and become the first DJ to ever spin atop the peak. And now we have the video to prove it – and it does not disappoint!
According to MusicNews, the trip took over two years of planning and nearly two weeks to set up – the hike up the mountain takes ten days and it took another two to set up the DJ and live streaming equipment, but the DJ was nothing but smiles before and after the set.
Oakenfold is the first DJ to ever play at the Base Camp of the mountain, which clocks in at 17,6000 feet above sea level. The event, that was live streamed to Facebook Live, raised money for various charities including funds going to support survivors of the 2015 Nepal Earthquake. It is also rumored that the set will soon be released as an album.
The trip and subsequent DJ set is a part of Oakenfold’s SoundTrek series, which will feature sets from unique places all over the world. But after starting at such a peak, where else do you think Paul Oakenfold can go? Check out the video and let us know where you’d like to see the DJ perform next!
