'World's highest party': British DJ Paul Oakenfold to perform on Mount Everest base camp

New Delhi:

British DJ Dax J is making headlines but this time its not because for playing any remix or any controversy. This time DJ Dax J is doing something which is simply out of the box. 

British DJ has reached Mount Everest's base camp the "highest party on earth" from where he is planning to perform a set highest party on earth.

Few of the mountaineers heading to highest peaK are likely to be joined by the three-time Grammy nominated artist and his dance beats.

Oakenfold's three decade long career has included collaborations with Madonna and U2 is also due to perform a set at base camp on Tuesday morning.

British Dj took to twitter to share the timing and place, here is what he wrote "We will attempt to broadcast my set on FB Live from Mt. Everest today at 11AM, Kathmandu time. GMT +5:45, in a little over 3 hours, tune in!"

Earlier the DJ was sentenced to a year in jail for playing a dance remix of the Muslim call to prayer at a Tunisian festival.

However, there's a chance he won't be serving his sentence since he has left the country when the charges were brought on.

"We are here now doing sound checks. We are really looking forward to the show tomorrow. Everyone is really excited here," Oakenfold told on Monday.

The 53-year-old British artist said that he had no trekking experience before.

When footage of Dax J’s Muslim prayer remix surfaced on social media, the governor of Nabeul, Mnaouar Ouertani, shut the club down.

Orbit Festival posted a statement on their Facebook page on April 3rd that roughly translates to the following: 

“Dax J did not intend to provoke your anger or offend you. It is clear, after his apologies, that Dax J is sincere and has no reason to hurt our dear festival-goers. We do not want to interfere in religious debates. Away from us the idea of tarnishing the image of Islam, which remains a religion of peace and forgiveness. So my friends, forgive, and don’t forget that the music is the answer.”

Here are some of his gig's:
