Electronic dance music festivals have grown massively in popularity over the last few years. They mix different kinds of music and are becoming increasingly interactive as well. What could be an electronic dance music festival, however, without DJs? These are the guys and girls that put on a show by spinning records on turntables, creating a hypnotic and mesmerizing beat, and keeping the crowd on the dance floor. DJs usually come from a musical background (DJs were once musicians) but they have the technical know-how to make you forget about your worries while he is spinning your favorite records. Just listening to a good DJ will get your heart racing.
DJs also set the mood at parties by playing upbeat music or soothing instrumental music. They can work with any kind of musical genre and can add just the right touch of spice to a party. A perfect electronic party is one where the DJ has a selection of high quality music for guests to choose from during the party. Sometimes just flipping through the channels on your satellite radio is not enough to put the party mood in sync; a good DJ adds something special to spice things up and get everyone involved in the fun.
DJs are professionals to impress their audiences. It takes years of practice to perfect the art of mixing tracks together to produce an excellent sound. This knowledge, coupled with a passion for music, has made DJs in demand at dance music festivals around the world. They know that there is something more special about parties where the guests can’t help but dancing to the beat. The DJ knows how to turn a party into a club.
Party themes can set the mood of an electronic music party. The most popular choices are disco, hip-hop, rockabilly, techno, reggae, and many more. If you have a DJ you want to hire for your party, he can come up with some of his own party themes. For example, you can ask him to play a jungle-y type of party with lots of dancing and pumping beats. Or perhaps you prefer a CD cover version of a favorite pop song. Whatever you have in mind, the DJ will be able to create a perfect party atmosphere that will have everyone tapping their feet or clapping their hands to the music.
As a DJ you can also choose to play original instrumental music. Your party guests will be glad to stand and listen to this music as it helps set the mood for your party. Choosing a genre of music from your favorite movie or from a musical instrument you know and love is a good idea. You may not be able to choose one specifically, but you should try to include songs with lyrics that will get everyone emotionally involved in your party. Hiring a professional DJ is a great way to ensure you have great parties and remember them fondly.
There are dance parties that are strictly for adults or there are those that are designed for children and teenagers. Adult parties are usually more spirited and more energetic than children’s parties. Adult parties tend to last longer and incorporate adult dance moves into the mix. Children’s parties tend to be more relaxed and fun-filled and are perfect for a younger crowd.
Some electronic dance music festivals focus on one type of dance such as the Berlin Festival of Dance or the UK Music Week. These festivals tend to focus on a particular dance style like the urban or trance. Other festivals celebrate everything from country and classical to new-age and fusion styles of music. No matter what type of electronic dance music you prefer, there is a festival out there to fulfill your party cravings.
Most electronic dance concerts and parties came together in one area for a single night. The best part about electronic dance concerts is that they can go on until the early hours of the morning. You can usually find electronic dance concerts in cities near you such as Las Vegas or Miami. If you don’t live in an area where these concerts are offered, you can still enjoy one by watching it on television.
