Networking is an essential skill for all DJ’s that want to know to how to get booked for DJ gigs.

In this blog, I want to highlight how I struggled to network in the music industry, how I overcame it, how you can too, and also the common mistakes I see time and time again from many DJs and Music Producers in Melbourne music industry.

As a Melbourne DJ I have gone through a lot of rejection to get where I wanted to go, so in this blog, I will explain what it can mean to be rejected, how to deal with it and how it can come down to being a numbers game.

In this blog, I will be writing about what happens to DJs with the wrong core values, compared to a DJ with the right core values. And how you can recognise if your values are helping you in your current situation and on the road to success.
