Amid COVID-19 lockdowns, Milan venue The Temple of Lost Future has brought together a number of its DJs and the electronic music community in its attempt to break the world record for the longest DJ set. Milan is one of numerous European cities that recently had quarantine restrictions instated. The Temple of Lost Future previously completed a 150 hour non-stop project on March 6.
The group aims to deliver 340 hours of music live streamed direct from The Temple. In their collective effort to beat the current record holder of 240 hours—established in Nigeria in 2016— they are also giving members of the electronic community a platform to discuss the impact of coronavirus. In the event of the set’s success, it will be dedicated to, “Italian health and medical personnel who in these days are saving thousands of lives by enduring truly admirable physical and professional efforts.”
“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,” stated The Temple on their event page.
Enrico Sangiuliano, Lele Sacchi, Nerone, Neill Landstrumm, and Fabrizio Rat are a few of the confirmed callers set to participate in the live stream’s conversation.
The DJ set began on March 20 at 9pm and is currently taking place at The Temple. It is set to conclude on April 3 at 12am, after 14 days and 4 hours.
