Every year here at Digital DJ Tips, we conduct a unique survey with you, our community, to take a snapshot of your DJing, the gear you use, your favourite software and music, your aspirations, and more.
With the world slowly getting out of lockdowns as we learn to live with COVID-19, and with international supply chain issues affecting DJ gear supplies along with many other goods in our economies, it’s been another strange and challenging year for DJs.
So here it is: The Global DJ Census 2022, easily the biggest survey of its type conducted anywhere, and today we’re publishing the highlights of the results of that survey. Scroll on for a revealing look at where the industry is at, and where it is headed – at least, as far as you, the 21,000 people from our community who completed this year’s census are concerned. Thanks to all of you for being a part of it.
Alongside the census, we run a prize draw, which is contributed to by practically all the hardware and software companies that supply DJs with the systems they need in order to do their job. So this year we’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to main sponsor Denon DJ, and also to Pioneer DJ, Roland, Serato, Allen & Heath, Traktor, Virtual DJ, Reloop, Numark, Evermix, AIAIAI, Hercules, Phase, IK Multimedia, Mixed in Key, Algoriddim, Beatport, UDG Gear, DJcity, Glorious and Beatsource.
