After successfully launching the event also in Ibiza last year, Dancefair is back in Utrecht. For 2015, over 100 of the top professionals will be sharing their knowledge on all things related to DJing and producing music. With names like Joris Voorn, Oliver Koletzki, Ramon Tapia and Cleavage on the list of artists to widen your knowledge, the event is something that no up-and-coming DJ nor producer should miss.
For newcomers and more seasoned veterans alike, navigating the information about DJing and production is time consuming. During the last few years, the innovation speed has grown by what seems like an exponential pace. As far as Youtube tutorials and online courses can take you, taking part in a live educational event is a whole different experience. Anyone who has ever been to a music class can tell you that, but when it comes to electronic music, formal educational events are more seldom.
Dancefair in Utrecht is an great example of an event, where single weekend packs the best of information from DJing, producing and audio engineering under the same roof with new gear. Bringing together some of the most cutting edge artists to share their knowledge on the business of music, Dancefair is a gathering of professionals, present and future.

Not to mention the possibility to dabble with the latest gear. Oh, the sweet sweet world of gadgetry…
