Doorly, Orbit co-founder says: ‘After Last Summer’s retreat the Orbit team and I have been over the moon with the response from our students and the success stories that we’re already having with our alumni. Many signing to their favourite record labels, and playing dream gigs. I’ve even signed a few to my own label which was a nice bonus, to find such amazing un-tapped talent like this is a really special thing. Watching their success invigorates us, and that’s what this is all about!’ So we’re extremely excited to launch 2 dates for this summer in Ibiza in May and October for the opening and closing of the season. As last year we will be giving a free scholarship to one very talented applicant and one free spot to the winner of a remix competition which we will be launching soon. We will also continue to build on our ethos of being more than just a DJ and production retreat focussing heavily on well being, physically and mentally to prepare our Students for Long, Prosperous and Positive careers in Music with a full team in place to support them along the way from every angle.’
Taking place in unique locations across the world, Orbit DJ Retreats will return this May and October in the center of a stunning UNESCO protected national park in Ibiza.
Doorly, Orbit co-founder said: “I’ve been lucky enough in my career to have been helped by some of my hero’s along the way, so I take being a mentor to young and breakthrough artists very seriously. I’m extremely proud of the success stories I’ve been able to coach and inspire in recent years and I know how much it means when somebody you respect can make a little time to guide you. Orbit really is going to be a life changing project for some of our students and after 20 years in this industry I feel I’ve got a lot of knowledge to share on how to enjoy a long and healthy career in music.
I’m also excited to launch the Orbit Scholarship which will enable one local student at each of our retreats the opportunity to take part in the programme for free. Orbit aims to be a truly global project so I’ve assembled a crack team of partners from Europe, the USA and Australia. Fittingly we launch our first and very exclusive event in Ibiza, the dance music capital of the world and my home for many years, so I’m super excited to get started and can’t wait to create some superstars!”
Orbit’s programme will cover all the essentials to succeed in the music industry, including; using DJ equipment at the highest level of performance, mastering production and software skills, marketing, social media and branding, business and career development, plus workshops and classes focused on health and wellbeing.
Rob Da Bank, Sleep Retreat co-founder said: “Iʼve been practising yoga, sitting in meditation and working with some amazing wellness and spiritual practitioners for over 15 years now as part of our festivals and Josie and I have personally practised yoga for 2 decades. Iʼm now ready for the next phase of this journey and am proud to be launching Sleep Retreat in 2019. Imagine diving into a different world for an hour or two and coming out as refreshed as if youʼve just woken up”
