Diplo has made history by being the first DJ to play a set on top of Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The stunt marked the 21st anniversary of BridgeClimb, a tourist organisation based at the bridge which has overseen four million local and international visitors scaling the bridge since it was set up. The set also came ahead of Diplo's appearance at Australia's Listen Out festival.
The DJ played for a small, selected audience at the bridge at sunset, his set taking place 440 feet above sea level. You can check a brief video capturing the moment below.
Diplo will perform at one of Australia's archetypal landmarks next week.
On Thursday 26th September, DJ/producer Diplo will perform on top of Sydney's Harbour's Bridge, marking the first time an artist has performed on top of the iconic landmark. The event will be held to celebrate BridgeClimb's 21st anniversary, the climb which has seen four million local and international visitors scale the bridge in the last 21 years.
Diplo's performance will be recorded live, and available to view following the event.
