We can tell just how excited you all are for our Above & Beyond DJ contest, as are we! We are really feeling the enthusiasm and it means a lot to us to be able to provide all you aspiring DJs and producers to showcase your talent on one of the best platforms anyone could ever dream of!
In order to help you out a little, we’ve compiled a list of FAQsfor you, just so you know exactly how this works!
1. Is the contest limited to participants within the 4 cities?
We want to include everyone that we possibly can! So anyone is more than welcome to participate, as long as you are able and willing to take care of your own transport/accommodation.
2. And what if I’m international?
The contest is open to you as well, but the same goes as for participants from different cities – as long as you can arrange your own transport and accommodation, you’re more than welcome to submit a mix.
3. Does my set have to be limited to Above& Beyond tracks?
Definitely not! Welove and appreciate variety – the more new music, the better. Plus, we haveAbove & Beyond to play as many of their tracks later on?
4. Do the tracks in the mix have to be genre-specific?
We’re not going to place any limitations on what you choose to play, but we do ask you to be mindful of the artists on the lineup and the crowd. If you think there’s a banging hip-hop beat/track that fits perfectly in your mix, go for it! However,if your mix is comprised entirely of Rock or Bollywood it may not have the best chance of being selected. That being said, have fun with it!
5. Can I upload original compositions in the mix, or does it have to be only remixes?
Yes, of course you can! And it is highly encouraged. But remixes of other originals are also welcome!
