The lucky selected DJ will have the honour of playing on one of the most devastating sound systems on one of best stages in the country at Rocking the Daisies, happening at Cloof Wine Estate in Darling.
DJs must submit mixes by no later than Monday the 16th September. The organisers will announce a winner on the following Monday (the 29th) at 10am on Red Bull Studio Cape Town’s website (as well as their social media pages on Facebook and Twitter).
So what are the judges looking for? Most importantly you need to understand this is an opening slot and it’s crucial to us that you understand where this set needs to be musically. We are looking for a careful blend of music that transgresses genres, showcases a love of music and an understanding that the role of the opening warm up set is to lay the foundations for the day and the night that follows. It’s all about setting the tone and creating the space.
