Thanks to social media, interacting with your favorite DJs has become easier than ever. One of the latest social networks that has drawn the relationship between fan and artist closer than ever is Snapchat. The mobile applicaiton allows users to send pictures, videos, messages, and drawings to a list of friends. These messages, also known as “snaps,” are viewable for up to 10 seconds before they are automatically deleted forever.
Each week, more and more DJs have been joining the application. They are using one of its main features called Snapchat Story. This feature allows them to share snaps together creating a narrative. Their story is then viewable for up to 24 hours to anyone who follows them. We have put together a list of digitally entertaining DJs that you should be following to cure the boredom blues.
