Menno de Jong announces end of DJ career
Menno de Jong:
"My dear fan or friend,
With humble gratitude and respect I'm hereby announcing that on September 12th 2020 I will be performing the last set of my DJ career at Menno Solo - The Finale. The past 20 years have brought countless memorable moments, allowed me to see many of the world's most beautiful places, and brought amazing people in to my life..
But throughout that era I have grown older and changed significantly as a person, developing a pressing sense of urgency to make decisions about how I spend the remaining time in my life. Whereas the thought of touring as a DJ was initially infinitely enticing, over time it has become clear to me that it is also an enormously taxing lifestyle that leaves limited room for personal growth, health and time with family and friends. Moreover, I'm finding it increasingly hard to consolidate my environmental and animal rights beliefs with a profession that involves constantly jetting from one part of the world to another. These topics are something that have always been very close to my heart.
Up until my last show I will be doing my very best to visit all the places I have performed at in the past one last time, so that we can have a proper goodbye, celebrate with the amazing music of the past two decades, and so that I can personally thank you for all your support - I couldn't have done it without you and it's been such a great ride..
Hoping for your understanding, with much love,

All travel for the above mentioned dates will whenever possible be by train or sailboat and, especially if travel by airplane is the only viable option, CO2 compensated. For every ticket sold to 'Menno Solo - The Finale' a donation of 1 euro will be made to Trees For All, a reforestation initiative that plants trees in different parts of the world. Should you travel to any of these shows I kindly request that you consider making a donation respective to your journey. Compensation is a compromise, but at this point I think it's better than taking no action. x
