Frequent flyers: Does DJ Culture Have To Rely On Airmiles?

We can make responsible choices all we like: using reusable bottles, recycle our materials, becoming vegan –all good. But when it comes to dance music, there's one thing nobody likes to mention too much: our appetite for flying around the world.

Perhaps it's sidelined as an issue because it’s the most difficult one to solve? OK, offsetting your carbon impact eases the pain, we all hope for future innovations in transportation –but what can we change NOW?

How can the events industry minimize its travel footprint? How can you keep your environmental impact low when you pursue an international DJ career, book artists from abroad or organize an event in another part of the world? The answers to these questions are still up in the air. A small but increasing number of industry professionals are highly invested in finding these answers.

Let’s open up the conversation. What responsibilities do event-organizers, bookers, managers, and artists have in changing the need for flights? Might reducing traveling even be beneficial for artists and the culture? Join us to talk about an issue that has been on everyone's minds, yet not many seem to be discussing: air travel. It's the flying elephant in the room.
