Your Shot finals kick off this weekend; prizes bigger than ever

It’s almost time for Your Shot to crown its winner, with just one hurdle left. With thousands of entrants signing up in 2013, the competition has been whittled down to 72 aspiring DJs. With six weeks of training via DJ Warehouse, each contestant will play a 30-minute set in their respective state over three weekends in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. It’s set to be huge – not just for the contestants, but for the crowd of supporters as well, with the event stretching over two days.

No doubt, this will be the most hotly-contested year, with a mammoth swag of prizes awaiting the victors. The winners of each state will get a chance to join the likes of Armin Van Burren, David Guetta, Calvin Harris and all these superstars on the two-day Stereosonic bill this summer. The Your Shot champ will also have their pick of these overseas DJ adventures: Yacht Week in Croatia, prime billing at Paradise Club, Mykonos (one of our Clubs To Discover Before You Die), or the hallowed Womb in Tokyo on its epic soundsystem. Last year’s winners Popcorn Thieves headed to Paradise Club and also to Thailand to compete in the Pioneer Austral-Asian DJ Championships.

It’s not just the up-and-coming DJs who’ll be providing the soundtrack. Hard-touring names like Helena, Tigerlily and Peking Duk will also be on hand at the events.

Your Shot Finals Dates:

13/14 July – Birdees, Brisbane

20/21 July – Greenwood Hotel, Sydney

3/4 August – Royal Melbourne Hotel, Melbourne
