Beautiful people, skimpy dresses or naked torsos, some ill-advised twerking to the hottest tunes and – often – drunken debauchery. All the things we associate with a good night of clubbing. Before leaving to dance the night away at the local club, you may want to check up on the DJ who’ll be spinning the soundtrack to your evening. Sometimes you might recognize the name – and in that case, you’ll likely realize that you should have left hours ago if you want to get into the club at all. More often, you won’t recognize the musical maestro on the decks, though.
It’s not surprising, then, that clubs hosting big name DJs can often sell out in a matter of minutes, and are typically swarming with fans lined up outside or all around the club trying to get a glimpse of the star Disk Jockey.
