Music lovers have nothing on this DJ that played for over 5 days straight!

Grab your turntables, glow sticks, and sleeping bag, because there was once a DJ set that lasted 132 hours and 30 minutes—that totals out to be an incredible five and a half days straight!

And no, he wasn't just doing it for the love of the music, he was set out to break a record that actually exists as the longest DJ set of all time.

DJ Smokin Joe Mekhael started his set on December 16, 2011 and didn't bother to stop spinning records until five and a half days later on December 22nd, 2011.

He recorded the whole thing to send to the officials at the Guinness Book of Records, who took months to authenticate it. The previous record holder was set by DJ King from Brazil, who lasted through five days of playing rap music.

If you think five and a half days was bad, the DJ marathon master decided to break his own record a mere year later by playing 168 hours (or seven days) straight. He rightfully owns the title of Marathon DJ Champion of the World.
