As 2020 draws to a close, I reflect on the challenges facing those of us working in events.

Online DJ shows are great for working from home and keeping connected; I am however looking forward to playing out in person as soon as possible.

About Matt Catt

For many years I have worked as a DJ and in production for clubs, parties and festivals. I'm best known for my Global sound that mashes up music from all over the world and have done countless gigs and shows for online radio.

However I am more than just 'that guy' who mixes great music; I work behind the scenes on events production and in the studio to create and edit content. I have also been the goto guy for many who needed help with their workflow or with completing a project doing anything from artwork to zoom meetings. I provide practical support and creative problem solving as I develop my own portfolio for social action projects & future events both online and in the real world.

How you can help

The corona virus lockdown couldn't of been more inhibiting for all of us working in events. Whist online shows and live streaming does provide a point of contact and a creative outlet, typical consumption habits make it hard to monetize without moving over to a pay-to-participate platform.

Meanwhile venues remain closed and redundancies are banging in the final nails. More can be done by our governments but also between audiences and their chosen entertainment streams.

I currently have options to subscribe on my channel and collect donations through my paypal page. I've looked into other methods and direct donations works best for me. You can give as little or as much as you like, and for the more-generous amongst you I shall be sending unique gifts and offers to DJ either online or in person once restrictions are eased.
