RED BULL MUSIC 3STYLE TO CELEBRATE THE ART OF DJING IN SOUTH AFRICA
6 DJs ON THE ROAD TO THE WORLD FINALS IN TAIWAN
Red Bull Music 3Style World DJ Championships IX is set to kick off featuring the best DJs from across the globe with a series of National Final events. Each local winner will then later represent their country at the World Finals in Taipei, Taiwan on January 2019.
A YEARLONG TOUR
This year’s World Tour will touch down from September through December, in cooperation with Pioneer DJ, Red Bull Music 3Style’s official Hardware and Software partner. Over 1200 DJs applied this year to be a part of it with the hopes of representing their Nation at the ninth edition of the world’s biggest DJ competition.
The event will take place on the 1st of November at The Werehouse in Durban with tickets available via Red Bull.
Throughout May and June, DJs from all over the world have submitted their 5 minutes performance video to be judged by a panel formed by the previous champions. Now, the winners from each stop, along with 3 global wildcards, will make their way to Taipei, Taiwan to join what some have called the “Olympics of Djing”.
This year’s DJs, announced below for the first time, will each bring their unique styles to the stage to entertain music fans and impress legendary judges. The 6 DJ’s that will compete at the Red Bull Music 3style South Africa National Final are:
- DJ SOOSH
- DJ EIGHTY 6
- DJ WILLY
- DJ SHAMELESS
- AMEETH SHAH
While the techniques may vary, the main goal remains the same: prove their skills and ability to get a party jumping in a 15-minute mix. In that time, each DJ must play at least 3 different genres of music and these sets are judged against the following criteria: Originality 40%, Skill 25%, Track Selection 20 % and of course Crowd Reaction 15%.
