With Splendour vibes, the Your Shot 2018 DJ contestants are up this weekend

Your Shot

It’s time for YOUR SHOT in Sydney! The DJ competition presented by Alcatel that provides a unique opportunity for Aussies to transform their passion for music into a career.

It has launched the careers of world-famous DJs such as Tigerlily, J-Trick and GO FREEK, and this weekend will be back at the Greenwood Hotel, North Sydney on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July.

The folks fighting for the title were selected at registration days where they undertook interviews, without so much as a serious passion for music.

They then train for 6 weeks at The Academy with some of the industry’s elite DJs, including NOY, Clueless, and Zannon. Then, the big day where they battle it out on the decks with a 25-minute set, which will see them go into the running to win a set at an International music festival including Creamfields (UK), Hideout Festival (Croatia), Snowbombing (Austria), ZoukOut (Singapore), The BPM Festival (Portugal), or CRSSD festival (US).

The Sydney edition is set to kick off this weekend, with some stellar new talent ready to hit the decks. This includes Youtube legend Alright Hey! (Matthew Hey). A proud member of the LGBTQI+ community, Matt is a social media influencer who loves breaking stereotypes, pushing the boundaries and maintaining a point of difference in everything he does.

The Your Shot Sydney event weekend will also see GODLANDS headline Saturday night, hot off the back of her Splendour set. Cazztek, the self-dubbed “Level 99 Dragon Bass Master” hailing from LA will be headlining the Sunday evening, with Your Shot his last show in Aus before he jets off to Europe.
