Tiësto has partnered with Your Shot USA to give aspiring US DJs the chance to perform with him in Las Vegas.
As the US installment of the Australia’s popular DJ competitions, Your Shot USA will document the journeys of 30 aspiring DJs as they are given extensive training and various challenges. Airing on Vevo later this year, the six-week competition will offer contestants the chance to win a performance slot with Tiësto in Las Vegas and at Ultra Music Festival 2016’s 7UP’s Stage 7.
The series doesn’t require entrants to have any prior DJing experience, with various rounds of training taking place at the Your Shot Training Academy in Los Angeles and a Los Angeles Showcase event in front of a packed crowd and panel of judges. The top 6 finalists will head to Las Vegas for a week of intensive challenges and mentoring from Tiësto himself.
Tiësto spoke of his involvement, saying:
“I’m so excited about Your Shot because it takes the idea of the DJ competition and turns it on its head. This contest really provides aspiring DJs with an opportunity to realize their dreams. Many times people don’t know how or where to get started with DJing, but the great thing about Your Shot is that win or lose, they get a platform to learn, grow, and achieve great things as long as they are focused and dedicated.”
Registration is open now to all US residents 18 and over. For more information, go to YourShotUSA.com/Register. Watch the promo video below.
