Topic: From minority to mainstream, challenge of Chinese electronic musicians
Address: Modernsky lab 5-108, Galaxy SOHO D, Chaoyangmen, Dongcheng District, Beijng
Organizer: China Music Business News
Background: In Europe and America, electronic music has already turned into one of the mainstreams. Each year, electronic music festivals such as Time Warp (Mannheim, Germany), Moogfest (North Carolina, the US), and Tomorrowland (Belgium) attract more than hundreds of thousands of fans and first class DJs.
In China, especially in recent years, many young people have started to go to clubs and join EDM parties, festivals, and live shows. However, lots of nightclubs and DJ clubs become more and more commercialized, whose main purpose is selling liquors. Though with luxury decorations, there is no dance floor. Night club culture has become a kind of consumer culture, and ignores true electronic music culture. Moreover, DJ qualities in different night clubs also varies. There are few qualified ones.
However, electronic culture becomes gradually popular in China. Except for a number of electronic music festivals, many comprehensive festivals also have special stages for electronic music. But large-scale festivals are more willing to pay high price to invite international DJs, while the fees for famous Chinese DJs are far behind that of DJs overseas. On one hand, Chinese DJs doesn’t get high income. On the other hand, the complex DJ environment also hampers the development of electronic music.
Is there a day that the fees for Chinese DJs will rise? How does the market cultivate more excellent
These are the questions that we have to discuss and think in the forum.
