‘Intergalactic Sounds’: Italian Astronaut to Play DJ Set on ISS

Luca Parmitano, an Italian astronaut now living aboard the International Space Station (ISS), will stream live his own DJ set from space for the participants of the BigCityBeats’ WORLD CLUB DOME Cruise Edition August 13

Luca Parmitano is an Italian astronaut performing his mission on the ISS, but this summer he will become the first DJ to make a live session from space. 

42-year-old astronaut will perform a set that will surely go down in history, not just for its music or technique, but for being the first  one to have been played in space.

Parmitano will broadcast his set for the participants of the BigCityBeats’ WORLD CLUB DOME Cruise Edition — a luxury party cruise liner travelling through the Mediterranean sea

The cruise left Barcelona August 12, arrives to Ibiza, then goes to the French coastal town of Sète and returns back to Barcelona.

The event promoter and German DJ Le Shuuk have been putting Luca Parmitano through an intensive month-long DJing course to get him ready for the set. 

Parmitano will perform his set in the Columbus module and will stream it live via satellite to 3,000 people partying aboard the liner.

According to BigCityBeats, ‘lucky ravers will be transcended into another realm as multi-dimensional visuals and intergalactic sounds will heighten their viewing experience in this universal feat.’

Parmitano launched on July 20, 2019 and arrived to the ISS as a crew member of Expedition 60/61 with Russian cosmonaut, Aleksandr Skvortsov, and NASA astronaut, Andrew Morgan. During the Expedition 61, Luca Parmitano will take command of the station. But before he takes his new important post, he has time to party!
