Another great DJ-Con event is going down on April 25th!! This time is for the youth and the community of Harlem!!
About DJ-CON youth Fest:
DJ-Con is an unending cipher of turntable performances by some of the countries best DJ’s.
DJ-CON strives to build connections and reinforce fellowship among DJs. We have worked hard in this tradition, establishing DJ-CON as an annual event people look forward to. With a Guiness World Record for the most DJs in one continuous cypher as a goal, we are asking DJs to come prepared to perform a 3-5 minute set.
This event is a great trip for schools and youth organizations to enjoy, network, learn and have a safe good time. Because of the politicians and surprise musical guests that will be present it’s a great chance for youth to enjoy fellowship with civic and entertainment leaders. Supporting the day are Harlem landmarks like The Harlem Arts Alliance, Impact Repertory Theatre, Christian Parish of Spiritual Renewal, On Point Experience, Willie Walker, Tiffany Herman, Hon. Milton A Tingling, Keith L.T. Wright., The Uptown Democratic Club, NYPD, Fidelis Care, The NAACP, UMDI, and Harlem Week to name a few.
