Fatboy Slim will play at the House of Commons next month (06.03.13).
'The Rockafeller Skank' musician will be the first ever DJ to play in the UK parliamentary building, usually populated by debating politicians. He will perform in the house as part of the final of a House The House competition.
Fatboy Slim - real name Norman Cook - said: "I've played some exciting and unique places around the world from Bondi Beach to The Great Wall of China to an igloo but playing in the House of Commons might be the most unique to date."
Through the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation, the House The House initiative aims to inspire people aged 16-25 to get involved in their local communities. The winner of the competition will get to perform alongside Fatboy.
He added: "I'm a proud supporter of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and the work that it's doing with House The House.
"Music is a huge part of my life and to give something back in this way is amazing."
Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, Mike Weatherley, said: "House The House is giving young people the chance to have a voice, to be recognised for their endeavours and to engage with their communities to create change from the grassroots up.
"Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and House The House are great examples of what the whole music industry can achieve in an innovative way."
