Rudimental and Gorgon City performed a gig at 30,000 feet on Thursday (23.10.14).
The two groups performed on board a new Virgin Atlantic 787 plane while it was crossing the Atlantic Ocean on its flight from London to Atlanta.
DJ Locksmith urged the lucky passengers onto the makeshift dancefloor during the #FlightDecks event, shouting at them: "This flight right here is going to be the best party of your life!"
They then treated fans to renditions of their two number one hit singles 'Feel The Love' and 'Waiting All Night'.
Speaking after the event - which was streamed to fans from the aircraft via WiFi - Rudimental's Amir Amor shared: "What a buzz. Having all the band together, playing to thousands of people around the world from the bar on a plane, you can't put a price on that. It's an experience we will never forget. "
Kye Gibbon from Gorgon City then added: "FlightDecks has got to be the most unique gig we've ever played and maybe will ever play. We're chuffed to know that so many of our fans were listening from home and we're thankful to Virgin Atlantic for helping us to share a one-off experience like this with them."
The 787 party plane has been named 'Birthday Girl' to celebrate Virgin Atlantic's 30th anniversary.
Virgin Atlantic Director of Communications Meigan Terry said: "By adding the 787 to our fleet, we are taking a big step forward in innovation and an even bigger step forward in continuing our commitment to delight our customers. We decided to christen our new 787, 'Birthday Girl', in true Virgin Atlantic style and are thrilled to have both Rudimental and Gorgon City on board with us."
