After months of preparation and anticipation, the 2016 Red Bull Thre3style World Finals kicked off in Santiago, Chile on Monday.

To begin the multi-day event, all 24 contestants partook in some good ole fashioned record digging at a local swap meet.

After picking up some heat and touring the city, the DJs made their way to a restaurant called Castillo Forestal, where they determined the order in which they would compete.

The day ended with a party, which featured a live set from Thre3style host, DJ Flipout.

Check out the recap video below and watch the live stream of the first round tonight at 7 p.m. PST on DJcity’s Facebook page. DJcity’s Styles Davis will also be live-tweeting the battle.
