No gigs? No problem.
With 2020’s festival season scrubbed from the calendar, our DJ friends are not having normal summers.
While the world’s dance music producers would typically be jetting from stage to stage, club to club and country to country, they’re instead currently staring at empty calendars and, much like the rest of us, figuring out ways to fill the newfound free time.
For many, the answer has been heading into nature, with myriad artists trekking to the mountains, the desert and various national parks. Some producers are kicking it at home alone, some are hanging with family, some are enjoying water sports in Ibiza and some are showing off their beach bodies.
Here are how 20 of your favorite DJs are spending their free time this summer.

The Belgian phenom actually went back to work, writing, “feels almost surreal to be back on the road…Please be safe and responsible. See you on the dancefloor,” before a sold-out show in Sicily.
Meanwhile, the Dutch artist just horsed around, joking on Insta, “Did you hear about the man who was hospitalized with six plastic horses inside him? The doctor described his condition as stable.”
