with DJs’, and will be followed with ‘Write with DJs’ and finally a unique masterclass with industry leaders in late March – ‘Discover with DJs’. Following last year’s success, including strong participation from the youth audience and an increase in sales for the target categories, this year’s campaign will include the new ‘Write with DJs’ competition.
