Published Aug 22, 2013Back in July, Red Bull put out a call for DJs to make an original 15-minute mix blending three genres. Now, the company has announced the 64 artists who will be performing at regional qualifiers across the country in order to move on in the Red Bull Thre3style DJ contest.
Almost 200 hours' worth of mixes were submitted by Canadian acts. Among the judges on hand to pick the winners were Skratch Bastid, Grandtheft and Smalltown DJs.
Next month, there will be regional qualifying shows in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. Winning DJs will then move on to the Canadian Thre3style National Finals in Calgary on October 6 at Cowboys Nightclub; this gig will also feature A-Trak, Smalltown DJs, and past Thre3style champs Four Color Zack and Headspin.
Finally, the Red Bull Thre3style World Finals will run from November 4 to 10 in Toronto.
Stay tuned for updates over the Red Bull Thre3style website, and peruse the list of Canadian regional qualifiers below, along with the list of contenders performing in each city. Each of the performers will have just 15 minutes to get the crowd moving while incorporating three genres.
