Following on from its 2019 debut, Orbit DJ Retreats is returning to Ibiza in October 2021 for a five-day music retreat. The experience allows budding producers and DJs to interact and learn from respected professionals in the industry.
Founded by DJ and producer Doorly, Orbit will host sessions from Warp Records’ Nightmares On Wax, music industry legend and Bestival co-founder Rob Da Bank, BBC Radio 1’s Arielle Free, Drumcode DJ and producer Juliet Fox, Dirtybird Recordings’ GAWP, Ableton’s Mark Burnett, Jukebox PR’s Alex Jukes and more.
Across the five days, students will be mentored by the aforementioned pros, learning the essentials to succeed in the music industry. This includes production and software skill tutoring, DJ lessons, marketing, social media and branding workshops, business and career development, along with sessions focused on health, meditation and wellbeing.
Orbit is teaming up with mental health awareness group, We Are Hummingbird. Co-founder and trainer, Ian Hurst, will host workshops and offer advice throughout the retreat to help producers navigate the challenges of the electronic music world.
Oliver Portamento, aka GAWP says of the event: “The Orbit retreat in Ibiza was one of the most influential environments I’ve ever been to. What a place to share my musical knowledge and experience. Everyone came from all corners of the globe to enhance their careers and skill sets by some of the industry’s leading mentors and I can honestly say… one week at the Orbit retreat created more than just an educational week, it also created a musical family, with great futures ahead.”
Orbit DJ Retreats will take place over the Ibiza closing parties, from 11 October to 16 October. Although the island is famous for its high-calibre party lifestyle, the retreat is set in a quiet oasis near San Antonio Bay, in a privileged, quiet location.
The five-day immersive learning retreat includes accommodation at the Orbit Finca with prices starting at £1799 per person.
