On the 6th of May, Pete Dawkins entered the Your Shot DJ Competition for 2017. Over thousands apply for the state run competitions in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne for ‘their shot’ to perform at Major Music Festivals around the world and get into regular gigs around Australia. Each state selects 90 contestants and Wild Cards. Contestants who haven’t any DJ training receive 6 weeks of training at The Academy and Wild Cards are given a 1 hour training session to practice on the equipment.
Pete entered as a Wild Card and was fortunate enough to make it into the competition.
The competition has already begun and on July 15 and 16 will be held at Birdees, located in Fortitude Valley where all of the Brisbane competitors will have 25 minutes each to move the dance floor in their attempt to take home the prize.
More information regarding the event days will be posted in the coming days as details are finalised.
