2020 was a tough year for electronic music artists and DJs, challenging everyone like never before. The world faced a pandemic of unprecedented dimensions. Restrictions and bans had a catastrophic impact on the entertainment industry, leading to a complete meltdown of the live show business. New Corona-related safety regulations have meant that many promoters and artists are left without a steady income. Massive cuts, caused by the cancellation of virtually all festivals and events, along with the forced closure of all clubs have pushed more and more DJs all over the world to the brink of ruin.
But not just the artists are suffering: electronic music fans are stripped of opportunities to see their favorite DJs play live, in addition to many other the challenges brought on by the pandemic. This is where SupportYourDJ.com steps in.
The new online platform allows fans to stay in touch with their favorite DJ. SupportYourDJ.com provides entertainment for electronic beat lovers, with the aim to inspire them and to bring music back into their lives. The DJs upload their exclusive sets, DJ workshops, tutorials, meet-and-greets, and other unique content and fans can watch this content an unlimited number of times for 3.99 euros.
What makes SupportYourDJ.com so special is that DJs receive a fair revenue share from their streams – a real lifesaver during the current climate. Canceled live shows have left a hole in the DJ’s pocket, which the groundbreaking new platform aims to fill. After all, the drop in record sales over the last 20 years has meant that live shows are the primary source of income for many artists. When this income drops away, artists find themselves in dire straights. SupportYourDJ solves this issue by providing a fair revenue stream to all participating DJs.
