The national final of the prestigious Red Bull Thre3Style World DJ Championship will be held in Baku on June 7.
Azerbaijan's best DJs, including DJ Apple, DJ Amaori, DJ Progress, DJ Rimas, DJ Rasl, and DJ Twist will compete for the right to represent the country at the world finals, which will also be held in Baku.
The DJs will be evaluated by three music professionals and the following criteria: a set of tracks, technology, creativity, and, most importantly, the ability to kindle the audience.
Baku will host the 2014 edition of the Red Bull Thre3Style World DJ Championship in September 2014, the event's organizers reported. The six-day event will bring together the best DJs from more than 20 countries, national winners of the championship's qualifying stages, a jury consisting of international DJ stars, and special guests.
Previous editions of the Red Bull Thre3Style World DJ Championship were held in Vancouver (2011), Chicago (2012), and Toronto (2013).
Red Bull Thre3style pits the world's best DJs in a competition that values technical skill as much as the ability to thrill a dance floor.
Competitors are judged on the dual platforms of technical ability and crowd reaction, and are given just 15 minutes each to prove they're the best in the room.
Thre3style's roots lie in Canada, but the idea behind the competition is global: get people dancing, keep the party vibes coming, and up your game until you're the DJ that brings the perfect set of music.
