COVID:19 / Coronavirus has had an incredible impact on the DJ / entertainment industry since March 2020, effectively grinding everything to a standstill.
Our latest Q&As are below:
The majority of DJs have suffered immensely, being forced into other non-entertainment work or trying to squeeze a few pennies out of live-streaming. All of the Storm DJs roster are on the edge of their decks, waiting for a vaccine.
No. The only DJs who would have been able to take advantage of furlough would have been a minority of salaried DJs (hotel/bar residents) where they were not classed as contractors.
97% of all our DJ bookings have been postponed to next year, with the rest either being pushed to end of 2020 or postponed further than next year.
HMRC’s current legal limit for private gatherings is 30 people.
There are a handful of bookings being taken. But because of the limits imposed on the number of people in one place, together with the social distancing regulations, and tighter spending it is proving difficult for most to justify the cost.
Yes we have been providing DJs to virtual events since April 2020.
Yes, all DJs that get sent out to events abide by all the latest rules and regulations.
As soon as possible. The government’s management of the pandemic together with the lack of vaccine has meant it’s taking a lot longer than it could have.
