Denmark’s first female and gender minority DJ Academy

No profit organisation Future Female Sounds will launch the academy in October in Copenhagen, focusing on aspiring selectors in the city.

Looking at the schedule, the programme will consist of a series of in-person workshops, mentoring, training and industry talks. These will be delivered in the Danish language, and each term is three months long, ending with a performance at a local venue. 

The scheme is in conjunction with the Tuborg Foundation and is exclusively open to females, non-binary people and other minorities. 20% of the placements are set aside for underprivileged young people. 

Future Female Sounds have been doing incredible work since 2017. To date, the organisation has helped over 500 aspiring DJs from minority gender backgrounds with their musical journeys in numerous locations around the world. 

Director of the Copenhagen based academy Tia Korpe said:

“Our approach has always been a combination of professional training in a safer space environment, followed by actual bookings and entering the market. 

We’re very excited to have the opportunity to develop talent through the DJ Academy, where we will also be able to connect them directly to the music industry to support their careers long-term.”
