You might be wondering how a rave could get any better; incredible music, amazing light shows, and nonstop dancing. What could make it better? How about a rave in zero gravity??
Well, that’s exactly what the European Space Agency (ESA) and BigCityBeats (creators of European rave World Club Dome) have decided to do. The first installment of World Club Dome Zero Gravity happened earlier this year, when the two organizations sent a zero-G plane up into the atmosphere, loaded with about 50 ravers and all-star DJs such as Steve Aoki and W&W. It garnered world-wide attention and was a massive success, so massive that today, they’ve announced part two.
Yesterday, the world’s first message to the EDM community from space was given from current International Space Station commander Alexander Gerst. The message came as a response to a whole host of superstar DJs including Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Timmy Trumpet, and of course Steve Aoki, who have been in talks with the ISS about bigger, better events for the upcoming year.
Watch the full announcement video below, and be sure to stay up to date on this collaboration. Maybe you could find yourself partying in space with Steve Aoki.
