DJs often begin as avid record collectors, much as orchestra conductors often start out as people who just have a ton of French horns lying around. See passion at work with this Groupon.

The Graffiti Party — A Night Time Color Festival
Unless they're willing to disguise themselves as a brick wall or an abandoned boxcar, there are few opportunities for people to get covered in graffiti. The Graffiti Party — A Night Time Color Festival is one such occasion, turning attendees into human canvases the moment they walk through the gate. Upon entering, revelers coat their clothes and skin with nontoxic paint and powder. They then move up to the stage, where lasers, paint cannons, and black lights make the crowd appear to be a colony of bioluminescent plankton in the belly of a crayon-eating whale. Live DJ sets and professional dancers rev up the crowd for the next morning's event, the Graffiti Run.
