Here's an interesting article written by DJ A-Trak Don't Push My Buttons
But in a festival environment, people just want to hear hits. They dont want to be taken on a journey, they want to hear what they know and can sing/dance along to.
People who go to festivals want to hear new music that hasn't been heard. Why pay good money to go hear tracks everyone else can hear at home? It's about the experience, but the experience should be all about a great environment, fun DJs, and new music with a hint of old good tunes.

There is a large amount of people that want to just hear hits, but people that want to be taken on a journey will respect that more

*will respect not just hearing hits more
interesting article but pressing a button is to easy for people to stop its to much of a challenege to compete with someone who puts on a show like deadmaus or guetta
Theres a balance to it and it depends on the environment. If its a ghetto house party, yes, people will only want to hear their favs, but if it is an actual show where people are thizzed outa their minds, then a journey is better.
If you spun Vinyl or CDJ for a while and then switch over to a controller of some sort, you are still a DJ because your roots started on a Disc.
If you never touched Vinyl or a CDJ for that matter, as good as you may be, I would define you as a "music remixer but not a DJ. It's not an insult to anyone, it's just the way it is. We all don't press play and I don't think the up movement of a Genre should redefine what a Disc Jockey is. A disk Jockey plays discs (vinyl or CD) that's where the name came from. A DJ may use a computer is some capacity, but if it were to "go down" A "real" DJ would have no issues with using CDs or Vinyl.
