Entries have opened for the inaugural AhhYeah Amplify DJ Championship for Northeastern U.S. DJs. The winner will receive prizes valued at more than $3,000.
Formerly called the Weekday Warriors DJ Battle, Peavey has relaunched the competition to reach a larger audience. It will be put on by DJ collective AhhYeah and co-sponsored by DJcity.
There will be three rounds: an online qualifier, three regional battles, and a final. The competitors will be judged on technical ability, song selection, crowd reaction, and originality. In a unique twist, crowd reaction will be determined by the number of social media “likes” a DJs’ video gets in the qualifier round.
27 finalists from the qualifier round will be selected on March 26 (nine from the New York City region, nine from the New Jersey region, and nine from the Philadelphia region).
The regional battles will take place from April to July. The NYC competition, which will take place on April 22, will be judged by DJcity’s East Coast Director Latin Prince as well as DJs Mell Starr, Esquire, Cypress Hill’s Eddie B. Swift, and GetLive!
The final is set to take place in New Jersey in September.
To enter the qualifier round, DJs must submit a two to five-minute video on Ahhyeah’s website by March 18. A full list of rules and details can be found there.
