HACK THE DJ at Unit Nine - Searching for Local Female Artists - Unit Nine - Milton Keynes

In 2018, we at Data Transmission changed our thinking and launched a new ‘learn’ section on the website and started producing content to help DJs get further in the music industry. Now in 2019, we are taking that further by launching a series of events in our hometown of Milton Keynes to help inspire, educate and empower DJs with the knowledge to get further. We are teaming up with local venue Unit Nine to help bring this event series to life by launching on International Women’s Day Friday 8th March.To kick off our new HACK THE DJ series, we want to start by looking at a huge local problem, which is the drastic lack of female DJ talent. We have curated a FREE day of discussions, panels, keynote addresses and fireside chats with some truly inspirational music industry women & men from places BBC Radio, Mixmag, Kaluki, Relief, Favouritism, Garage Nation and Data Transmission. DT head honcho Grahame Farmer says “The recent launch of three major events in our city has been exciting for everyone in electronic music. These events are going to start to rebuild a culture here which has been held together for a long time by one small venue, doing the utmost to cater for every musical taste. The sad fact is that promoters booking the events have booked the local support from the best local talent available - unfortunately, these have all been male acts. We’d like to start with this event to build a bigger talent pool locally which includes both male & female acts. Which we hope in the future will give promoters more options when booking line-ups”Ladies, if you are a DJ, want to be a DJ or generally just want to work in the music industry then please come and join us for a fun day.
