An Italian club is gunning for ‘World’s Longest DJ Set’ record while in lockdown
Lockdowns, self-isolation and social distancing aren’t easy for anyone, so it goes without saying those who are creatively inclined will probably think up new ways to pass the time. Such such innovative way comes from Italy’s Milan, where a nightclub is making very good use of their time indeed by attempting to break the world record for Longest DJ Set.
The current record was set in 2016 in Nigeria, and lasted a whopping 240 hours. Milan’s Temple Of The Lost Future (aptly named for a time like this), is hoping to hit that and exceed it with a goal of 340 hours.
The set is being streamed from within the club, and according to Mixmag, will also feature “conversations with dance music artists and promoters from across the world who are discussing the state of the scene amid the global pandemic.”
Taking to Facebook, the club wrote, “During the DJ set, Italian and international artists, promoters of cultural centers and clubs from all over the World will participate by telephone, telling how this virus has radically changed the lives and professions of everyone, each bearing their own testimony.”
Promoters and other industry figures from across Europe, Asia, and North and South America will be joining the stream, with Neill Landstrumm, Fabrizio Rat and Enrico Sangiuliano also confirmed to feature.
The set is already underway, having kicked off on March 20th. If everything goes to plan, the set will run for 14 days and four hours, ending on April 3rd. For more info, head to the Facebook event, or check the stream via Youtube!
