Dance music festivals have become a staple in the music festival circuit, with some of the largest attracting hundreds of thousands of people. These events span over multiple days and feature DJs and artists from around the world.
A childhood friend of mine is celebrity DJ, and I had the opportunity to go backstage and see a lot of really cool behind-the-scenes activity! I’ll save all the backstage photos, videos, and writings for a later post here on my website, so stay tuned!
