“[I] stumbled upon it as a hobby and now I’m just doing it for fun,” Solomon said on a Goldman Sachs podcast in 2017.
Solomon typically hosts four to six events a year, with all profits going to charity, a Goldman spokesperson said. Some executives play golf for fun, a Solomon DJs spokesperson added.
Solomon’s hobby has led him to headline a number of high-profile events such as the 2019 Amazon event and this year’s Sports Illustrated Super Bowl party.
“The vast majority of viewers seemed to follow the rules, but [Solomon is] concerned that some have violated them and put themselves and others at risk,” a Goldman Sachs spokesperson said in a statement.
Last June, Solomon moved from using the alias DJ D-sol to his CEO’s name David Solomon and released a single titled “Learn to Love Me” which he promoted on his Instagram account.
Lollapalooza will take place July 28-31 at Chicago’s Grant Park, with over 170 performances scheduled across eight stages. Four-day tickets for the event range from $350 to $4,200.
