Having broken the world record for the world’s highest gig twice before we are setting out to do it for a 3rd time, taking the record to a dizzying height of 7246 meters high. This extreme gig will see a group of musicians set out on a 30 day trek to reach the summit of Mount Putha Hiuchuli in the Himalayas in order to play the most breathtaking gig of their lives looking out to an audience of the snow-capped mountain peaks.
Along the way we shall be jamming with locals to create a beautiful heart felt exchange through music as we explore the sublime scenery of the Dhaulagiri range in the ‘Wild West’ of the Himalayas and raise money to rebuild remote Nepal after the earthquake.
