Your Shot USA DJ Competition Reid DouglasWednesday, August 5, 2015CultureNewsReviews0 Comments57 views Fellow producers! Your time has come! Your favorite soda pop wants to hear you play at Ultra! Your Shot powered by 7UP is a eight-week competition to discover and train America’s next wave of DJs. Distinguishing this competition from all other DJ competitions is that no DJ experience was required to enter; applicants needed only be committed to learning the skill. From the thousands that registered, only thirty will be selected to learn everything they need to know to play real parties and clubs for massive crowds. With the backing of 7UP and dance music icon Tiësto, the 10-part web series will document the journeys of 30 aspiring DJ’s as they are provided with extensive training and compete to ultimately win the chance to perform with Tiësto in Las Vegas and to show off their skills at Ultra Music Festival Miami 2016, as a featured performer on 7UP’s Stage 7. Throughout the series, viewers will live through the eyes of the contestants – The various rounds will include comprehensive DJ training at the Your Shot Training Academy in Los Angeles and a Los Angeles Showcase event before a packed crowd and panel of judges including agents, managers, DJs and Tiësto, himself. The top 6 finalists will go to Las Vegas to participate in a week of mentoring with Tiësto and other notable DJs, resulting with one Your Shot contestant winning the title and taking to the stage to open for Tiësto at the Hakkasan nightclub in Las Vegas. Tiësto has been fundamental in helping to launch the careers of some of the world’s best known DJs including Hardwell, Martin Garrix and Oliver Heldens, to name a few. Check out the episodes here!
