Virginia aka VRGN (pronounced Virgin) is the 1/2 of HER, and started DJing in 2018 to simply share the music she loves along with all the feelings it creates. Within that time VRGN has already played in some of the biggest clubs in the Greek scene such as Gazi Music Hall, Steam, six d.o.g.s., 01:Athens, David bar and more, sharing the decks with both Greek DJs and international ones.
