They Battle, You Dance #RB3Style
Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 10:00 PM - Friday, February 8, 2013 at 1:00 AM (EST)
Red Bull Thre3Style gives highly skilled DJs a global platform to showcase their skills, battle and gain notoriety by rockin’ the dance floor.
Unlike other DJ battles that are based on solely technical aspects, Red Bull Thre3style has a creative and original format that seeks to find the DJ that has best perfected the true art of rockin’ the party. Competing DJs are given 15 minutes and the challenge to play three different genres of music while keeping the crowd rockin’ on the dance floor. A panel of music industry judges will select the winners based on track selection, creativity, mixing skills, stage presence and crowd reaction. Whoever is named best on the decks gets bragging rights, a prize purse, and advances to the next step on the road to the world finals.
Event schedule, updates and music from past competitions can be found at http://www.redbullthre3style.com/usa.
