It’s a hell of a thing, DJing in front of a huge, international crowd.
Many of you guys have seen my Youtube Series The 90 Days Project: 90 Days To Becoming A DJ In Berlin. I think you’re going to like this episode.
When I moved to Berlin, I, along with my buddy Rachman, decided that we would become DJs. I made this goal years ago in college, when I started using it as a pickup line at parties—which is really how most of my plans get started.
How to Hack Getting A DJ Gig
If you check out the previous episodes of the 90 days project, you’ll see how we got started: we couldn’t get shows instantly, so we built a shopping cart music system and threw parties on the street. Episode 3 shows how we tried to build an amazing, bicycle wheel-laden behemoth that was a total failure.
So we realized, instead of only playing in bars….
What if we rented out a club and threw a party of our own?
So that’s what we did. Rachman found a club in Berlin, VCF Club, that was available to rent. He brought in great Dubstep DJs: Mensah from the UK, and several local excellent DJs from Berlin.
As you’ll see on the video, through the use of Facebook Ads and shopping cart promotion, we got the club completely full. Rachman did some amazing work with marketing and bringing in excellent DJs.
Check it out—I promise you’ll get something out of these methods.
