Are you a festival goer? Tired of the standard festival experience? Well, you’re in luck because BigCityBeats have announced a summer event that is out of this world…… literally.
This August, an astronaut from the European Astronaut Corps will be playing the first DJ set in space live from the International Space Station (cue Daft Punk’s Around the World).
It’s all going down on August 13th. The honour of the first DJ set in space falling to ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano. He departs from Earth for the mission on July 20th. To prepare him BigCityBeats and German DJ Le Shuuk have been putting Parmitano through an intensive DJing course. The set will be streamed live via satellite to those attending the WORLD CLUB DOME Cruise Edition. The event is a luxury cruise liner which will be taking 3,000 attendees around parts of the Mediterranean Sea.
Earlier this year, DJ Le Shuuk took part in another of BigCityBeats’ ambitious sets by playing a zero-gravity DJ set in a plane of celebrities and astronauts.
