As well as hosting gigs by established acts from the worlds of punk (such as Rancid), hip-hop (Aesop Rock) and dance (Steve Aoki), its two stages have given underground artists the opportunity to step into the spotlight.

“This place is without doubt the most beautiful I’ve ever paddled on,” says French whitewater kayaker Nouria Newman of this glacier-strewn area of British Columbia, Canada. “It takes some effort to get here – you have to take a hydroplane, paddle across a lake, and hike up with your kayak – but it’s totally worth it.”
