DJ Mag has announced a series of 25th anniversary events across the UK and Ibiza for 2016.
The first party will take place on Wednesday, April 27, at Phonox, Brixton, in association with Fabio & Grooverider. The following night, DJ Mag will host an invite-only event at Work, London, where they’ll launch the new issue with live sets from DJs including Danny Rampling, James Zabiela and Danny Howells.
On April 30, DJ Mag takes over Egg LDN with a line-up featuring Dennis Ferrer and Tania Vulcano, with all DJ sets will be streamed live via DJmag.com. Space, Ibiza will then host the biggest DJ Mag 25th birthday event to date on June 30. The line-up will be announced soon.
“It’s quite a milestone, electronic dance music was traditionally seen as disposable and throwaway, so for us to have stuck around for a quarter of a century - especially in the current publishing climate - is quite an achievement,” said DJ Magazine editor Carl Loben. “Over the years DJ Mag has tried to reflect the whole spectrum of the music, which has grown exponentially since we’ve been alive. All contributors past and present, not to mention everyone who plays a part in our scene, have helped make the mag what it is today - the leading global publishing brand in electronic music.”
DJ Mag will publish its 25th anniversary issue on April 28 with a special edition focusing on 25 electronic music pioneers from the past 25 years.
