Support. Organize. Sustain.

Panel discussions and informational seminars addressing real topics and issues facing the electronic music community.


Friday, October 18th

With dance music culture increasingly trending toward notions of “business” and “industry,” the time has come to provide a counterpoint. On Friday, October 18th, we hope you can join us for a day of panels, presentations and community building in Amsterdam.

Tapping into a pool of leading minds and experienced voices, S.O.S. will focus not only on protecting many of the foundational values that underpin our collective scene/industry, but also on creating needed change as it moves into the future. While many of these conversations are already happening behind the scenes, there is a need for these topics to be developed and heard by wider audiences.

Spearheaded by Zak Khutoretsky, a.k.a. DVS1, S.O.S. is a group of people with years of experience in the music scene. We are DJs, producers, label owners, promoters, booking agents, political activists, academics, cultural critics and more.
