If you're looking for a set that's going to be out of this world, we've found it

Promoters BigCityBeats have just announced a massive event with one of the most unique locations you're going to see.

In August they'll be presenting the first DJ set from space as an astronaut plays a set live from the International Space Station.

August 13th is the day and European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano will be the man behind the decks.

He'll leave Earth on July 20th and has been through an intensive DJing and production course with BigCityBeats and DJ Le Shuuk to get prepared.

The set will be streamed live via satellite to attendees of BigCityBeats' WORLD CLUB DOME Cruise Edition - a luxury cruise full of 3,000 punters.

We'll have to wait and see if the idea takes off in the near future and becomes a regular!
