Dallas , TX -- "Its Official... Dallas , TX is home to The Core DJ's Retreat VII". The Core DJ's Retreat is a semi-annual reunion of DJs, industry professionals, labels, and artists, designed to be an exclusive networking event to introduce new industry trends, new artist, and music to key players in the music industry.

About The Core DJs and The Core DJs Retreat
Tony Neal, founder of The CORE DJs, founded the coalition in December of 2003. Tony’s purpose for organizing a DJ coalition was to create a vehicle that would empower and educate the core of the music industry, the DJs. Today, some of the most influential DJs are members of The Core DJs. To date, this is the only DJ Coalition in the country!
Twice a year, The Core DJs organizes The Core DJs Retreat. Now on the 7th retreat, The Core DJs Retreat is considered the premier event for DJs by DJs.

The Core DJs Retreat is not a music conference or a record pool meeting so you won’t attend panel discussions. Instead, the retreat is the premier direct marketing vehicle to promote, showcase and/or to introduce music or recording artists directly to DJs through various sought after events. This is the only event of its kind for DJs by DJs with complimentary DJ registration regardless of affiliation.
