Entries & Rules

All DJs interested in competing will need to record a 20-30 minute mix using either Turntables or CDJs and a mixer, use of DJ softwares (Serato-Scratch Live, Traktor, etc) in conjunction with CDJ’s or Turntables is fine but will be monitored at the time of the competition to ensure the competitors are not cheating by using any other software, sync or pre-recorded mixes.

Using any Hardware controllers or DAW softwares such as Ableton, Fruity Loops, Logic is not permitted.

DJs will than upload their mixes online and submit them via the submission form at the bottom of this page to the local competition managers in their chosen state.

The competition managers will listen to the mixes and pick the top 6 to play at the Victorian final.
