The Chainsmokers become the first musical group to perform in space

chain smokers are about to take their performance to another stratosphere, literally. In a few years, the group will bring its production 20 miles above the earth to achieve a performance that, figuratively and literally, could never be surpassed.

Last week it was announced that The Chainsmokers (Alex Pall and Drew Taggart) have signed up for a future trip to a pressurized capsule attached to a stratospheric balloon in which they plan to record a DJ set in the far reaches of space inside the capsule. The flight will be within the framework of the exploration company, World Visionwhose mission is to “inspire the global community to rediscover the Earth.”

“We have always dreamed of going to space and we are thrilled to partner with World View to bring this adventure and experience to life. We know the sights of Earth and space are going to be amazing and inspiring and we hope leverage this flight for creativity on future projects.

The Grammy-winning duo will be among the first to inaugurate the new commercial space tourism flights since World Visioneverything is ready to happen in 2024. The Chainsmokers have always been known for forging their own path, but it has to be there with the most innovative thing they’ve ever done. Flights for future exploration trips will cost $50,000 with an initial deposit of $5,000and the whole experience will last six to eight hours.

“One of our goals is to make space tourism more accessible to people from all walks of life, including artists, who we know can tell powerful stories after seeing the wonders of Earth and space. World View is proud to be the first space tourism company to offer this experience to musical artists. ryan hartmannCEO of World View
