Sam is a regular DJ at festivals across the globe. She has appeared at Secret Garden Party, Bestival, Ibiza Rocks, Latitude, Lake of Stars and Burning Man, to name just a few. Her more unconventional venues include Austria's igloo discos and Soviet bunkers over in Kazakhstan. On a more glamorous front, she has performed on super yachts moored in Monaco.
Back in 2014, Sam was given the chance to play in Cuba; this made her the first foreign female DJ ever permitted to perform there. In 2012, Sam did at 90-minute performance at the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games, which was broadcast on Channel 4 with a live audience of 80,000. Another major event in 2012 was Sam's trip to Egypt to do her radio show in the wake of the Mubarak protests.
Sam frequently travels to war-torn places to take part in community initiatives and to bring The Selector to the airwaves. Tripoli, in Libya, was Sam's destination in 2013, where she teamed up with the Youth Forum. In 2014, she flew to Jordan with Oxfam and spent time at Zataari, the world's second biggest refugee camp.
