Event description
Welcome to our annual Ecstatic DJ Conference! An online 4-day gathering for conscious dance teachers, facilitators and DJs of all levels

About this Event

Who is this conference for?

Our conference is open to anyone (professionals and amateurs) with an interest in playing music for conscious dance. We will cover mostly DJ-related subjects but will also include Ceremony Leading and Event Production for those interested facilitating and organising.

✦ What's the difference between your DJ conference and DJ training?

This conference is by no means a replacement to our DJ training but rather a way for us to get together, connect and share. Throughout the week, we'll be offering a selection of taster classes, panel discussions, live DJ sets and tie in with our existing Ecstatic Dance events with our communities from all over the world.

✦ How is the conference different from last year?

We've redesigned the conference to be more compact (condensed over 4 days instead of 7) but extending the length of each session (75 min) to allow space for a good Q&A after each class/panel. There will be 2 sessions going on simultaneously in differents rooms: the Auditorium (main room) and the DJ Lab (breakout room). Want to attend ALL the sessions? No worries -we'll be recording all sessions and videos will be made available to all those who pay the suggested minimum donation!

✦ Do I need any specific software/hardware to participate?

No. We've designed this conference to be accessible to everyone so you don't need any software or hardware to attend any of the sessions. Our teachers will be using Traktor Pro 3 from Native Instruments for demos, but everything they will be teaching can be done from any other DJ software.

✦ How much does it cost?

In these times of economic crisis, many of us are finding ourselves with a reduced or no income, so to make the conference accessible to all, we're offering it on a donation-based model. We suggest a donation of €35/day or €129 for the full Conference Pass, but you can give as little or as much as you wish. Your donations will be used to support our self-employed DJs and organisers, all of whom are spending a lot of their time and energy putting together this event.

✦ Will the sessions be recorded?

Yes. We will record all the classes & panels and they will made available to all those who have sent a donation of €129 or more. If you donated less and wish to purchase the recordings after the conference, you'll be able to pay the difference to access them.

Please RSVP and share on Facebook:

Very much looking forward to welcoming you!
