Thousands of young Australians have applied to live out their dreams and swap their bedroom for the festival main stage. And now, for the first time, it’s New Zealand’s shot.
2010 saw the conception of a revolutionary style of DJ competition. Unlike anything to come before it, ‘YOUR SHOT’ offered young guys and girls a shot at the big time – to become DJ’s capable of playing at the best clubs and festivals all over the world and the best part – no DJ experience was necessary to enter, with full DJ training provided. Ten years on, over 7,500 contestants have made the journey, with 61% now holding residencies and performing regular gigs.
Combing all the suburbs of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth – and for the first time Adelaide and Auckland – ‘YOUR SHOT’ will give 150 new Contestants and Wild Cards from each state the opportunity to get their shot. Each contestant will receive a 6 week full DJ training course at The Academy where they’ll learn all the basics and put together their first ever DJ set. Following their training, each contestant will perform for the very first time at a sold out, two day ‘YOUR SHOT’ event in their state.
The ‘YOUR SHOT’ event will showcase some of the top national and international headline DJ’s, as well as the best up-and-coming local talent. With around the clock sets from all the DJ hopefuls, each contestant will give it their all for the chance in taking home the title of ‘YOUR SHOT’ champion, along with a host of life-changing prizes. The winner will score their very own set overseas at one of the world’s hottest party destinations including Imagine Festival U.S.A, Snowbombing Austria, BPM Portugal and Costa Rica, Chasing Summer Canada, CRSSD Festival USA, Hideout Festival Croatia, OMNIA Day Club Bali, Snow Machine Japan and The Yacht Week Croatia and Greece.
It’s a life changing experience for all involved – but don’t just take our word for it – check out our socials and see for yourself!
