    A DJF Hosted night in the UK would be ....Interesting !

    UK Gang .... Let's GO !

    Would be pretty cool to set up a night somewhere ... Hand full of DJF Dj's / Producers all contributing and doing it for the love of music.
    We have a wide range in Talent here from Dj's to Designers to Promoters to sound engineers ... When you think about it .... We have all the right ingredients here to set up a Festival .... Who's in ?>

    I would think that the first step is creating a solid foundation. This being selecting what DJF will do and what its identity will be. This means other than a forum, what does DJF want to offer the world? Reviews for gear? Partner with labels, festival production companies, gear companies for new and exciting programs? Show reviews? Label?

    A makeover would be nice too like an actual site with things like the above built in.

    Once this has been established, we would just need to go through the current hierarchy and assign tasks and maybe even bring new people on board for specific things. I think the whole everyone does everything approach leads to sagging eventually where if people have specific roles then they wont get bogged down. Plus its easier to transition people in and out.

    I also think if we do this right we can reach out to companies for sponsorship and if that happens we could raise capital to do all kinds of cool stuff for our members.

    Why not? I worked with a small electronic music community that threw a few events in LA and got them to do a DJF promo the last few shows before they went cold. We could host a stage/room, work with outside promoters to allow new producers from the forum perform..

    I mean... if you guys decide to get a writer and can get some sponsors and such to float coverage at events i would be willing to help out with photos and such im always at events and even with dj's i also know 95% of the other photographers that tour with the djs or event companys we could do a spot light on them and the importance of promotions etc
