DJ Contest

Year 6 of DAVE is once more looking for new talents! This years’ DJ Contest shall encourage all young DJs to send us their self-made DJ sets. No matter how much DJ experience you have. Beat matching doesn’t have to be perfect, we don’t care about music genres – we love diversity and just want to listen to good music in the first place!

From all submissions, an independent jury – consisting of DAVE team members and representatives of Dresden’s music crews – will pick the three most fabulous DJ sets. The winners will be announced at the festival opening event on October 18, 2019 at Kleines Haus Dresden and will be rewarded with prizes worth 100 EUR each. They will also get the opportunity to perform at this years’ DAVE festival.

Now, here are the hard facts:

  • your application should contain your full first and last name, as well as your Email-address.
  • the audio file should be named like this: “dave-dj-contest-2019_artist-name”
  • your set should be an .mp3 file and approx. 45 – 60 min long
  • your set should be enabled for download
  • please send the link to dj-contest@dave-festival.de
  • the application deadline is September 5th, 2019.

All submissions will be anonymised by our DJ contest team and will be uploaded to Soundcloud for the jury voting. Each member of the Jury can pick their three favourites, which will count by weight in the overall vote. The prizes for the winners will be provided by Musikhaus Korn, THE SPOT Dresden – Contemporary Apparel for Women and Men, Bandcamp or our favourite record dealer Fat Fenders. Many thanks to our prize donors!
