The Chainsmokers will become the first musicians to perform at the edge of space. The DJ duo of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall have signed up to be launched into the stratosphere in a pressurized capsule.

Ryan Hartman, CEO of space tourism company World View, shared the news first with the Associated Press.

According to the article, The Chainsmokers are slated to be onboard one of World View’s inaugural flights in 2024. The capsule will be tied to a stratospheric balloon and can hold up to eight passengers. That may mean that the DJs may have an audience on their trip to the sky.

Hartman said that he selected The Chainsmokers because he saw “firsthand and personally how their music reaches a lot of different groups, a lot of different age groups and just how passionate they are about their music and their art.”

At about 20 miles above Earth, The Chainsmokers will perform its set. The entire flight will last somewhere between six to twelve hours, World View told AP.

“We have always dreamed of going to space and are stoked to collaborate with World View to have this adventure and experience,” The Chainsmokers said. “We know the views of both Earth and space are going to be incredible and inspiring and we hope to leverage this flight for creativity on future projects.”
