Sound interesting? Come to one of the teaser sessions before the festival at Directions Youth Services, Broadway Youth Resource Centre (BYRC), Qmunity, or Urban Native Youth Association (UNYA). One of the Technical Knockouts will be there to introduce you to the technology and processes involved. Teaser sessions will run for approximately 2 hours.
On Friday, May 12 join DJ O Show for a Technical Knockouts session – DJ 101.
Youth will have the opportunity to demo DJ equipment that top-of-the-line DJs use, and learn the basics of DJ’ing. Learn what it is like to be a female/aboriginal DJ in the industry today and have the unique chance to hear Squamish’s own DJ O Show’s motivational story. The goal of this teaser session is to mentor youth who are interested in becoming a DJ like DJ O Show! DJ O Show believes – if she can do it, so can you!!
