In a first, hit-maker duo The Chainsmokers are officially set to perform on the edge of space from a pressurized capsule tethered to a stratospheric balloon 20 miles above the Earth.

Set to take place in 2024, this feat will make the duo, composed of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall the first musicians to perform at the edge of space.

The performance is set to be recorded from inside the capsule to give viewers the ability to experience not just the performance but also the trip firsthand.

The duo will take flight with Space tourism company World View and the company said the duo will be on one of their inaugural flights in 2024. Speaking about the feat in a statement, The Chainsmokers said, “We have always dreamed of going to space and are stoked to collaborate with World View to have this adventure and experience. We know the views of both Earth and space are going to be incredible and inspiring and we hope to leverage this flight for creativity on future projects.”

Ryan Hartman, Chief Executive Officer at World View shared that while at this time most space flights have ferried scientists, and engineers, World View wants to send up artists in the hopes to “inspire them to do something different than they would have otherwise done.”

He went on to say, “We think about inspiring new perspectives and how those new perspectives can lead to a radically improved future for our Earth. To be able to reach the audience of The Chainsmokers through Alex and Drew’s work contributes to our mission as well. It’s something that I’m personally inspired by and excited about. I have just seen firsthand and personally how their music reaches a lot of different groups, a lot of different age groups and just how passionate they are about their music and their art. It matches our passion for what we do.”
