In an act of pure stamina and dedication, Italian DJ Joseph Capriati endured on the decks for an astonishing 25 hours and 30 minute marathon set at Miami’s Heart Nightclub this past weekend.
Starting his set on Saturday November 18, the veteran artist managed to conduct a unremitting and completely unexpected onslaught of dance music - prompting the nightclub to begin letting people in for free and watch this marvel unfold.
In a tweet the following day, Capriati disclosed that he did come to the gig with the intention of playing a marathon set, but never expected that it would last as long as it did. He's apparently broken his own record for the longest set he's ever played, too. Major kudos to Mr. Capriati for his nonstop music curation.
Check out his tweet and some clips of this glorious feat below.

Well Miami, I came with the intention of a marathon set at Heart club last night, but I never expected to end playing for 25 HOURS and 30 minuets! That’s the longest set ever of my life, and would be difficult to repeat it as you can’t plan that, it just happens. Thank you— Joseph Capriati (@josephcapriati) November 20, 2017
