Staying motivated in times like these can be difficult, but the key to keeping positive lies in proactivity.
With this in mind, here are just a few things all DJs should remember right now to help weather the lingering COVID-19 nightmare:
People Always Crave Good Times
First and foremost, the pandemic won’t be around forever. When it finally leaves, millions will have every intention of partying like they’ve never parted before. A wave of pent-up demand will be released on the entertainment industry, representing one incredible opportunity for DJs and live performers, making up for the bad times endured during much of 2020.
DJ Live Streaming is Always an Option

Along with providing you with every opportunity to practice your craft, it’s also a great way of making yourself known and keeping people entertained. Advertise your services for people throwing (responsible) parties and do whatever it takes to keep yourself busy.
You’ve Plenty of Time to Get Social
