Step Four: Playing Out
By this stage of the process, you’re ready to venture into public, and this section shows you how. From booking your first gig to everything you need to remember to take, I’ll get you out of the door and into the venue. Once there, I’ll show you how to set up, how to behave towards everyone from the doormen to the club manager, and how to deal with the inevitable nerves that come with playing out. Once you’re up and running, I’ll give you stacks of hard-won advice to make sure you read your crowd correctly and programme an amazing DJ set – whatever type of venue you’re playing in.
