DJ Gee Papa from Cyprus has made it into the Guinness Book of Records for the longest DJ marathon of 116 hours.
The current record stood at 88 hours which George Papapetrou, a.k.a DJ Gee Papa, claims to have broken before when he played non-stop for 105 hours at Limassol’s Nautical Club last year. However there was no representative from Guinness present to register it so he had to do it again.
The 34 year old was allowed a five minute break every hour and if he did not take the break then he could accumulate the minutes for later, which he did at one point so he could sleep for two hours.
The proceeds from the event will go toward helping the victims of last year’s fire disaster in Greece. [MixMag]
