Scheduling - The First Session is Free!!
Tuesdays 19:00 - Teaching; There will be multiple setups of different complexities with practiced DJ's familiar with a range of genre's. Don't hesitate to bring your own equipment, we can teach you how to use it! Any questions on DJ'ing in general or if you wish to find a committee member who can organise a DJ for you, please come along.
We are aiming to have at least one event every 6-8 weeks. At a club around Swansea, where there will be 5/6 sets up for grabs, a comittee member will accounce these on the facebook group chat so keep an eye out as it will be first come first served.
Female Memberships - The Facts
As you may have seen, we have a separated discounted memberships for all girls wishing to join and train up as DJs. This is due to the late passing of SU member Ben Rees. One of Bens wishes was to see more female DJs around Swansea and the UK as a whole. Bens lovely mother alongside the SU are more than happy to welcome this change.
We understood Bens wish after looking up some of the following shocking statistics, we hope our current and future male members agree:
Only 10% of performers at music festivals around the world are female.
All-male acts make up the overwhelming majority of festival lineups, ranging from 66 percent of all performers (Outside Lands and Governors Ball) to 93 percent (Electric Zoo).
Women Produce 9% of Electronic Music.
