Danny Clayton

A talented film maker, television host, producer and DJ, Danny has been a guest in the living rooms of Australian’s for over 15 years. As one of subscription television’s longest serving presenters, he has earned six nominations at the annual ASTRA Awards. Danny is enigmatic, passionate, and most importantly… an all-round nice guy.

Having worked at Channel [V] (Foxtel) since he was just 16 years old, Danny has filmed thousands of hours of LIVE television and interviewed hundreds of the world’s biggest celebrities with his warm, quirky style including Will Ferrell, Kristen Stewart, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Justin Bieber and the Foo Fighters. As a Foxtel network personality, Danny co-hosted LIVE panel show The Riff, pop up gig show Guerilla Gigs and explored the world on youth travel show B430 where he rode motorbikes in Brazil, rock climbed mountains in Japan and explored glaciers Iceland and that barely scratches the surface.

Currently the host of AIR GUITAR, Qantas’ inflight radio show, and having previously hosted other national weekly radio shows such as Planet Vevo on Southern Cross Austereo’s Hit Network, Danny is no stranger to live radio.

An experienced DJ and MC, Danny has played at and hosted a variety of different events, concerts, festivals, clubs and client launches including Nike’s Indoor soccer competition, Nutri-grain’s glow in the dark skate park event, Falls Festival, Splendour in the Grass, Groovin the MooBig Day OutThredbo’s FULL MOON and Apres-Ski parties, Tinder Parties on The Island and many more.

In 2017 Danny hosted three special events presented by Optus – Re:kicked, to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the release of INXS’ album KICK; The Speed of Bolt with Usain Bolt which saw Danny DJ alongside The Avalanches and Usain Bolt himself and Republic Records Summer Love Party which featured Shaw Mendes, Lorde, James Bay and a special performance from Jack Johnson who shared some laughs with Danny on stage.

To start 2018 off with a bang Danny DJ’d the main stage at NYE in the Park, Sydney’s newest NYE festival, and on the Marriage Equality float at the 2018 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade and on the Hot Dub Wine Machine tour in March.

Danny’s work as an influencer and producer has seen him collaborate with brands including Jägermeister, Ducati, RoamBen & Jerry’s as part of their Chunks for a Change ice cream tour which saw Danny document and produce a video diary of his experience, Cotton On Fifth Army campaign to raise awareness of youth issues, Ford EcoSport ‘Discovery’ campaign as a judge and The Salvation Army Australia which saw him interview Year 5 students about the issue of youth homelessness.

A man with a social conscience, Danny took part in the annual Rock n’ Ride motorbike ride from Brisbane to Melbourne supporting youth mental health organisation Head Space.

Experienced, friendly, energetic and even professional. (After we’ve told him to put a suit on and shave his beard of course).
