This has no price.

It was great to get inspiration in a different country. There was a lot of nice masterclasses and a lot to learn. For me the best part of the bootcamp has nothing to do with what i was able to learn - for me the essential part of the bootcamp was the networking. I met people i visited afterwards and people i am still in contact with. This has no price.

Great

The best part of the Bootcamp was to personally meet everyone, have chat, interact. Many friendships are continuing till today - it speaks for itself 💖

about 2022 edition SJ Yellow

I love It!

Attending the Bootcamp for me was undoubtedly the most important step that I took from being just a hobbyist towards actually pursuing somewhat of a career in electronic music. Learning from professionals during the masterclasses and interacting with them throughout the event really opened up my eyes for all that was possible in this industry. Even just being in an environment with so many professionals makes your dreams suddenly feel a lot closer than they felt before. Many thanks to Seedj for making this possible!
