FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQs

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 here's 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 regular 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."

How does the shared accommodation work?

We have taken over a beautiful Finca in Ibiza with an intimate and exclusive feel. All places available are shared accommodation. Some shared accommodation has multiple private rooms, others do not. If you are booking with a group of people we advise that you book the amount of places available in that room, however you can also book single places in shared accommodation and you will be placed with another Orbit Student. 

As there are a variety of sleeping options in each of the rooms including double, single and bunk beds, we will allocate these bed options on a first come first serve basis for the people who book onto the retreat and their chosen accommodation option first.

Please note rooms are mixed gender.
