A Top Clothing Brand is Looking for a DJ in London, Liverpool and Glasgow

Point Blank 2016 - 829

We have been approached by a top clothing brand with a great opportunity for a DJ. They are looking for someone to play an in-store gig in London on 24th September, 2pm to 5pm. Because of the nature of the gig, they are looking for an upbeat pop/commercial DJ set – think top 40, modern favourites and cheesy classics (these can be remixed, so long as they’re recognisable to a general audience).
The right DJ will also have a social media presence and following across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. You will get a fee and £100 of clothing, plus PR from a major retail outlet.

They are also looking for local DJs based in Liverpool and Glasgow. Info for those gigs below.
