Global Dance Music Industry Makes History With World DJ Day

All the UK dance music publications, MTV, Radio 1, and Galaxy have pledged their full support for World DJ Day. Their involvement and ideas are already promising to make this an historical event in dance music's history.

World DJ Day is a global fund raising effort to benefit many childrens charities around the world. Saturday, March 9th 2002 is the date for the largest global fund-raising activity the dance music industry has ever been involved in. On that night, and the week running up to it, the global dance community will be working together to raise money for international children 's charities. DJs, clubs, promoters, magazines, radio, TV stations, and record labels are all involved in the fund raising. From auctioning off an A-list DJ, to holding a top DJ soundclash and many exciting ideas. World DJ Day is an annual event and is shaping up to become one of the most important dates in dance music's calendar.

Essentially its a week of fund raising that will involve every member of the international dance community. This will be the first time the whole industry has worked together for one cause. A truly unique event that has the support of everyone involved.

World DJ Day is asking every DJ to give up their fees for one night and donate the proceeds to various children's and music associated charities around the globe. From the leading A-list players, to every commercial, mobile, and bedroom DJ in the world. The internet's biggest DJ site, [url][/url], will inform over 3000 resident DJs in 82 countries about World DJ Day. We want everyone to come up with ideas on how they can get involved - from top clubs to tiny clubs - together we can make a significant change to children's lives across the world as a result of people's generosity, drive, and commitment. Anyone who would like to help by putting forward their creative ideas should click on to:

Nordoff Robbins, the renowned music industry charity, will administrate all funds and work with charity partners in other countries across the world.  DMC branches in 26 countries are forming committees and proposing children's charities who will work with Nordoff Robbins. Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy does extremely valuable work for children, and is founded on the basis that everyone can respond to music therapy, no matter how ill, disabled or traumatised. The centre treats 350 adults and children each week through individual therapy programmes that are designed to encourage everything from personal growth and development to stress release. This is the first time in its history that the dance community will come together on such a national and global scale.

Patrons already signed up to World DJ Day include some of the biggest names from the international DJ community: Pete Tong, Danny Tenaglia, Sasha, Dave Seaman, DJ Lottie, Tim Westwood, Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk, Carl Cox, Trevor Nelson, Hernan Cattaneo, Seb Fontaine, Sister Bliss and many more have already pledged their full support and total commitment to World DJ Day. All the world's leading clubs and promoters have also agreed to do everything in their power to make World DJ Day a resounding success.

Internationally, support has been forthcoming from as far as Mixer Magazine, Spundae (the legendary West Coast club) and Groove Radio in the US, Metrodance 95.1 FM in Buenos Aires, DMC in Australia and many, many more dance industry people across the globe. There are also a number of industry committees currently being formed in local territories in order to undertake the administration of funds and events for local children's charities.
