Rock with altitude at SnowpenAirKleine Scheidegg, Switzerland

With a backdrop of Switzerland’s most beautiful mountains, SnowpenAir allows punters to get high listening to the likes of James Blunt and Bryan Adams. For two days in April, the world’s highest open-air concert showcases some of the world’s biggest acts, as well as some homegrown heroes to keep the local crowd happy.

Forget warm beers and the stench of portaloos that typically hovers over festivals, and instead breathe in the fresh alpine air and enjoy a schwofen (dance) on the slopes.
