Tips & Advice For DJs

  • When entering the DJ competition, here are some tips and advice that could help you maximise your chances.
  • It is important that the contestant sets the camera up to capture all their moves or has a friend filming the performance.
  • The video must show the competitor’s face at least once during the two minute video to authenticate their performance.
  • Each video must NOT exceed two minutes, it can be less but never more. It’s up to you what you do in those two minutes. (2mins 04 Seconds and less will be accepted).
  • A two minute set containing even the most brilliant pre-production and original music, will not win unless the DJ demonstrates live mixing skills as well as great musical concepts.
  • Don’t wait too long to impress the viewer, hit them with your magic early in the set or they’ll be off to look at someone else.
  • If you made it into the Top 10 but were not chosen as the winner or runner up of a round by the DMC World Champions, then enter again either with the same set or with a new one. Your points will start from zero for any Round you re-enter.
  • The better you’re doing in the DMC Online DJ Championship, the more promotion of YOU is taking place. To build your reputation and become a legendary DJ hero you need to keep your name and talent out there.
  • Even if you don’t win the Final, we will be listing top scores by country entered and will have leader boards for each country.
  • ALL entries from each Round will be archived for people to view so remember that once you’ve uploaded your set, it’s going to be here forever.
  • As soon as you know you are the winner or runner up from a round and know you are in the Online Final, start to prepare your six minute set.
  • If you make it to the Online Final but know you will not be entering a 6 minute final performance please let us know in advance.
  • The public will be the first judges and can only vote once for any performance they view. To protect the integrity of the voting, the final judges will always be DMC WORLD CHAMPIONS whose voting will be revealed on the DMC Online website.
  • Once you have uploaded your set make sure to spread the word on facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. using the tools we’ve provided, to your friends and fans everywhere so they can support you!
  • And finally, from everyone at DMC, we hope to see you in the 2016 DMC WORLD DJ FINAL in London later this year… we’re ready to book your flight and hotel. Good luck!
