|Avicii World DJ Festival Interview with Nowtrax|
|04 May 2011|
The 5th World DJ Festival takes place in Seoul this Friday and Saturday. Bright DJ newcomer Avicii is making his debut performance in Korea at the event, so Nowtrax caught up with him to see what he’s looking forward to about the event..
What have you heard about the dance music scene in Korea?
Not that much to be honest but I have heard it’s a great place to party and I really want to explore the Asian market, Korea being one of the priorities on that list.
You made your debut when you were a teenager and now you are a world famous DJ in your early 20s. How do you cope with it?!
I try not to think of it like that! I’m just trying to enjoy the moment and not be too serious about stuff. I guess I’m just lucky to have the right people around me.
You travel the world to perform, so what’s the most memorable performance you’ve had and why?
I would have to say Sound Academy in Toronto. We had a New Year’s Eve show there that got cancelled due to too many people showing up and lack of security. Luckily we managed to get back and do a make up free show that was just completely amazing!
Oh I’m always working on loads of stuff! I don’t know how much I can say but I’ll definitely showcase some of those new tracks in Korea…
What are your inspirations when you produce a tune?
It varies a lot. Music-wise I get inspiration from all genres, nothing in particular really. I guess my mood and people around me inspire me lots too. I always got my most important feedback from my manager.
What do you have to say to the fans who will come to World DJ Festival to see you?
Im reeeaaaally looking forward to my first visit to Korea and to see what the world famous Korean crowd is all about!
