Jesler Hondema has been interested in electronic dance music for all her life. She grew up listening to gabber with her older brother, and the first single CD she bought with her pocket money was Tokyo Ghetto Pussy – I Kiss Your Lips. She started her career in the music industry as a DJ, as part of the all-girl DJ collective SPACEGIRLS, and as a DJ agent. After a few years, she became a freelancer with Amsterdam Dance Event as one of her biggest clients. She’s been working as a conference curator for four years now, curating two conferences aimed at young talent.
Amsterdam Dance Event is the world’s largest festival and business conference for electronic music. Last year we welcomed around 395.000 festival visitors, 8000 music industry professionals from all over the world.
