29.03. | 18.30
What were the key developments that led to the growth of DJ culture? Who were its pioneers? And how did DJs come to make a profound impact on the entire music industry? British DJ and author Bill Brewster and co-author Frank Broughton explore this chapter of music history in their cult book "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life" (first edition 1999). In his talk, Brewster describes the key figures of DJ culture and the transformation of the DJ from a mere service provider to an acclaimed star.
