DJ mix and remix competitions have become increasingly popular over the last few years. While they are often used as a marketing tool for large music festivals and record labels, you can use them to your advantage. In this week’s video we discuss why you may want to enter these types of competitions, tips for creating your entry, and where to find competitions online.
Not all competitions are created equally. Some ask DJs to produce remixes instead of a DJ mix. Some are solely popularity contests, and others are just marketing ploys. Read the competition rules and guidelines before entering into any competition. Even if you don’t think that you’ll win, entering into a DJ mix or remix competition can be a fun challenge, so don’t be discouraged by the other entries or participants.
