“We have always dreamed of going to space and are stoked to collaborate with World View to have this adventure and experience,” said The Chainsmokers. “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.”

With commercial space tourism flights launching in 2024, The Chainsmokers will be among the first explorers to experience the stratospheric journey. The Chainsmokers will record a performance from inside the World View capsule, giving viewers the ability to experience the music and the artists’ trip to the edge-of-space firsthand. Further information about the performance and recording will be released at a later date.

“We are incredibly excited to have top-selling artists The Chainsmokers take this inspiring journey on one of our flights.” said Ryan Hartman, Chief Executive Officer at World View. “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 wonder of Earth and space. World View is proud to be the first space tourism company to provide this experience to musical artists.”

World View Mission: Rediscover Earth

Unlike any other space tourism company, World View flights will originate out of the Seven Wonders of the World, Stratospheric Edition™, including the Grand Canyon, Great Barrier Reef, Serengeti, Aurora Borealis, Amazonia, Pyramids of Giza and Great Wall of China, providing explorers the opportunity to experience natural and man-made wonders from the ground and the edge of space.

Flights cost $50,000 with an initial deposit of $500 to reserve a seat. Eight World View Explorers and two crew members will be lifted in a zero-pressure stratospheric balloon and pressurized space capsule to 100,000 feet altitude, nearly 23 miles into the stratosphere, for a transformative experience that will last six to eight hours. Explorers will lift off before dawn to watch the sunrise over Earth, view the curvature of the planet and experience the darkness of space. They will see a world without borders, without race and will fully experience and immerse themselves in the beauty, fragility, history, and importance of the areas surrounding each location and of the Earth itself.
