Get yourself on the bill Pete Tong, Basement Jaxx and more!
Aspiring DJs are being given the chance to show off their skills on the decks alongside some of music’s biggest dance artists.
MTV Crashes Coventry, a two day music festival, arrives at the Ricoh Arena on Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28 and show organisers are giving one local DJ the opportunity to kick off proceedings on day two with a 30 minute set.
Day two of the festival is celebrating club anthems, and will feature performances from the legendary Pete Tong, Basement Jaxx, The Chainsmokers and Wilkinson. While day one sees the likes of the Kaiser Chiefs, Tom Odell, Sigala, Fleur East and Chase & Status take to the stage.
To win this unique opportunity DJs should submit a video showcasing their skills to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Sunday, May 15.
A shortlist of three finalists will then go to a public vote via the Ricoh Arena’s social media channels and online at ricoharena.com with the winner announced on Friday, May 20.
Rob Mitchell, Head of Marketing at the Ricoh Arena, said: “MTV Crashes has really caught the city’s imagination since we announced that a range of big name artists were coming to Coventry, and what better way to capture this excitement than by giving somebody the opportunity to show just how much they love music?
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a budding DJ to play on the same stage as Pete Tong, Basement Jaxx, The Chainsmokers and Wilkinson giving them invaluable experience that could lead to their first big break.”
Individual day tickets for MTV Crashes Coventry are priced at £10, and can be purchased online at www.ricoharena.com/entertainment/mtv-crashes-coventry
