Rockness 2013 launch their search for an up and coming DJ to win an opportunity to play the festival.

DJ competition 2013

As in previous years the festival is keen to give an opportunity to fresh talent. One of the judges and Soma Records boss, Dave Clarke, urged DJs to enter, saying: “The Rockness DJ competition is a must for any aspiring DJ. The winner is provided with the opportunity to play at the festival, which with a bit of luck and a lot of hard work can lead to other breaks in what is a very tough game to get into. Previous winners include Fuad from Snafu in Aberdeen and Kottis from ‘We Own’ in Edinburgh. Get mixing!”

The winner will get a RockNess slot on one of the dance stages, 2 x weekend VIP camping tickets and 5 general admission tickets for your entourage. The 4 runner-up DJs will each bag a pair of weekend camping tickets.

Full entry details are at the Rockness DJ competition Soundcloud page.
