The local DJ contest will take place between August 20th and September 23rd and addresses the Romanian DJ community. Participants can submit their applications (DJ sets hosted on SoundCloud, MixCloud or comparable services) from September 20th onward via the Electronic Beats Festival’s Facebook event.
The top 15 most liked posts in the EB Festival Bucharest Facebook event will be shortlisted. A panel made up of music critics and event organizers will rate each entry based on technical skills, overall mood, creativity and track selection. The genres considered will be Deep House, Tech House, Minimal, Techno and similar ones. The winners will be chosen by September 25th, 2015 and announced via EB.net and the Electronic Beats Facebook page. Entrants must be at least 18 years old.
The big winner will be offered the opportunity to mix in the opening sessions of the festival and will receive Native Instruments equipment worth 1,600 Euros.
Also, in order to strengthen the local music community, Telekom and Native Instruments will host Native Sessions – a live learning experience for aspiring electronic music producers and DJs within the festival, on October 3rd, at Control Club. Details and application information are available here.
