Armin Van Buuren To Be First DJ In Space



It seems Dutch trance superstar Armin Van Buuren isn’t content with being one of the biggest names in music on the planet as the DJ and producer has announced that he is set to be one of the the first 100 people to undertake a commercial flight via the space expedition corporation to outer space next year. Setting Armin back to the tune of £64k the flight, which is the first of its kind will see the artist amongst 100 voyagers trained as “founder astronauts” leave the atmosphere and enter space.

Speaking of his out of this world adventure Armin said “For every DJ, it’s a dream to travel 3.5 times faster than their own sound! And then that deafening silence at 100 kilometers high. I can’t wait. I guess a 200 BPM heart rate is likely.”

We’re sure that avid Space enthusiast and Detroit legend Jeff Mills is sitting somewhere green with envy…

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
