The BPM Show 2013 5 weeks

The BPM Show 2013 is my favourite DJ show on earth for all manner of reasons, but mainly because it’s 100% focussed on DJs. It’s not simply treated as a segment of the wider pro audio market and stuffed into available corners of a much larger show. For this reason, it also attracts more actual DJs to the show, because it’s open to everyone for all 3 days. And probably because I don’t have to fly anywhere and pay extortionate rates to get there either.

So expect a deluge of BPM related stories, not least news of what we’re going to be getting up to at the show too. But first, BPM 2013 is happy to brag about how great the show is, and importantly who will be there, peddling their wares.

I can’t say anything about what’s going to be at the BPM Show from a gear heads perspective, but needless to say that the show is now a vitally important fixture on the calendar. Aside from all the other news that will be leaching out from BPM HQ in the coming weeks, there will be some interesting stuff to see.

BPM 2013 is at the Birmingham NEC from 14-16th September. Tickets are on sale now.

Open question – who’s going and what do you expect to see?


Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
