DJ Sets World Record For Longest Set

dj-alan-dDJ Alan D has made a place for himself in the record books by fighting exhaustion to DJ a set that lasted more than five days.

Guinness World Records officials were on hand, filming DJ Alan D’s 124-hour mix at Zico Bar in Wishaw, Lanarkshire. The DJ was only allowed a five minute break every hour and mixed 1,500 tunes in total, playing each not more than once every four hours.

“It was gruelling. I didn’t think it was going to be as tiring as it was,” notes “D”. “I remember almost passing out a couple of times and the staff had to slap my face once or twice to keep me awake.

DJ Alan D broke the previous record of 116 hours, held by Cypriot DJ Gee Papa, and helped raise cash for Cancer Research UK.

  3. I really do not understand how you can all go for these few hours, Is the a CD playing record ?

    I broke the World DJing Vinyl Record in 1982 which was 227 Hours. I have all the proof as well as people signing every hour. This was a widely publicized event.

    Please challenge the correct Hours

  4. Has this record been approved by the Guinness World Records officials Alan ? Do you have the certificate for it, Because i couldn't find it on their Site.

    As for Cedric, i read somewhere that u were the one who had that record in feb 2009 :p
    so were u able to achieve ur record of 168 hours ?

  5. Where can I listen to these long mixes? Yes, I know they’re very LONG, but I would like to check them out. Seeing what subgenre plays first and ends last, all just for my taste.
