Future 1000: Introducing 1000 female, trans and non-binary students into electronic music

Hosted by Jaguar, BBC Radio 1 DJ and presenter, the Future1000 is a free programme to introduce 1000 female, trans and non-binary students into electronic music by 2022. This initiative is an inclusive space for students of all backgrounds, structured around modules on DJ-ing, music production, presenting and industry skills, giving students the support they need to start their journeys into music.

Students who are enrolled receive:

  • 12-part video course on DJ-ing, music production, radio presenting and mentorship, hosted by Jaguar
  • Opportunity to take part in nine live virtual events hosted by Jaguar and special guests, hosted throughout 2021
  • 1-year license of Soundtrap (the cloud-based audio and music production software)
  • Supportive community network of key industry figures and artists

This programme is open to all UK students aged 12-18 who identify as female, trans or non-binary. Applicants must be enrolled by their music teacher in order to verify that they are a student. Teachers can use the ‘Nominate students’ button to get started. If you’re a student or parent/guardian, please share this website with a teacher and ask them to nominate you/your child.

Teachers can enrol up to two of their school students who are eligible. The first 100 eligible schools who have students signed up will receive, at no cost, a long-term loan of the Pioneer DJ DDJ-200 controller, FutureDJs 'How to DJ' book and a three-month Soundtrap license for the music department.
