With the different pitfalls and problems that DJs face, one of the biggest problems a DJ has to face is being told to stop DJing. Over the years, we've seen a rise in venues asking DJs to leave the turntables, primarily because of what they're playing. Why some of these clubs would book an artist without knowing if their regulars will be into their music is a confusing ordeal, but with EDM meaning big dollars for these huge megaclubs, bookers are either solely looking at Facebook likes or are just gambling with their slots. In light of recent events, with the hope that the increased mainstream eyes on dance music doesn't intensify these incidents, we wanted to bring you a brief look of DJs getting kicked off of the decks.
