Does my experience or technical knowledge effect whether I can attend or not?
One of our co-founders Doorly answered this question for us and heres what he said -
”I started my career .in a bar collecting glasses, I absolutely loved music and was collecting records at home and one week the opportunity finally came up when the regualr dj never showed up and I bravely stepped in to cover having never played to a venue or people before. I managed to get the gig on a regular basis and was soon playing 6 / 8 /10 /12 hour shifts and pushing myself and teaching myself all the time. I wish i had someone to show me the ropes then that would have fast tracked my learning and help me avoid some big mistakes along the road of djing 20 years later Im now a global ambassador for Pioneer but still learning constantly and looking at my peers and industry leaders for inspiration and new challenges.. There’s no level that is too basic or too advanced to join us.
Is there support for all genres of DJ'ing / production?
We support and appreciate all genres and talent and will match the tutors to the attendees. The mentors are carefully selected from all different angles of the music industry. On confirming your attendance with the retreat we hold a group webinar to assess your skills and musical preference and what you hope you to learn during your time with us.
What do I need to bring to get the best out of my experience?
Bring along any items you typically use in your sets or production -Laptop sd cards / usbs / hard drives/ current projects you’re working on even goals and targets you have made and want to achieve.
We're a duo / group- Will this experience be beneficial for us?
Of course. The retreat is open to all levels and genres for production performance and presentation.
What do I come away with after the experience?
Aside from improved production and performance knowledge and experience you will have an up to date EPK (Electronic Press Kit) to present to promoters / managers / agents including new press shots, a recorded mix from the live stream playing B2B with one of our mentors and many priceless connections within the industry.
If I don’t currently produce is this the right fit for me?
If you wish to begin production this is the perfect opportunity to have someone on one time with our certified production tutors . If your goal is to polish your performance we can tailor the curriculum to give you bonus performance tutorials.
I'm not familiar with social media, is there someone available to help me with this?
Social media is always changing and people are always learning so you won't be at a disadvantage with little or no past experience with social media or a current social media presence. We will have a n expert on hand to support you setting this up and up skilling.
What free time will we have?
The days curriculum are designed to utilise your time with us for optimum gain for each attendee. We set evening homework or “tasks” at the beginning of the week for the evening when the tutors / classes are finished so you can come in armed with new questions and queries the following day. We encourage you to work as a team and learn from each others strengths each evening.
