It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a...raver?

The promoters of a San Diego electronic music festival are inviting 200 ravers to get sky high at Skyfest, where they'll have the option to plummet from a plane when they're not dancing.

Attendees will have the unique opportunity to tandem skydive directly over the festival from a dizzying 13,000 feet in the air before landing "just a few dozen yards away from the dance floor," according to Skyfest's organizers.

Attendees of Skyfest, a San Diego electronic music festival, can tandem skydive during the event.
