UON DJ Comp

Beats on the brain? Bass in the bones?

Well, the time’s come to show us your dexterity on the decks!

Sign up to be a part of the UON DJ Comp at the Godfrey Tanner Bar.


What's in it for me?

Have you been to the Autonomy Day Party? Have you seen that crowd?

Win this comp and you will be the headlining DJ at the biggest party on the UON calendar, plus you'll pick up a number of guaranteed gigs at other UON parties.

And if you don't take the top prize? Fear not, we'll put you onstage for some of our other events.


Can I test the decks?

That's funny, because we're holding two demonstration events called... Test The Decks.

We'll be demonstrating the CDJ 2000 Nexus decks - the very decks that you'll be working with at the DJ Comp. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, come along, see the equipment in action, and have a test drive for yourself. DJs are welcome to bring their own controllers and flash drives:

Thursday 7 March
4pm - 6pm
East Courtyard (near the residences)
Friday 8 March
12pm - 2pm
Auchmuty Courtyard

How do I apply?

Big question with a simple answer.

Complete the UON DJ Comp entry form. That's it!

Entries are free and open to all UON students.
