Enter new monthly Beatport and Pioneer DJ competition now

15 Jan 2021

Beatport and Pioneer DJ have teamed up to launch a monthly DJ competition, offering DJs a chance to win €1,000s in prizes, perform on Beatport's Twitch Channel, and build up their fanbase on a global scale.

The deadline for the competition is 12 am PST (8 am Friday GMT) on 17 February. 

This is a great opportunity for SAE Music Business and Audio Production students to show what they’re capable of. 

To enter, all you need to do is submit a 20-minute mix (audio & video) using Beatport LINK. You must be using Beatport LINK during your set. If you don’t have the software, you can sign up to a free trial here

Then, you need to upload the link to an UNLISTED YouTube video, along with your name, email, social media links, age and country. 

You’ll be notified once your submitted video gets approved for meeting all the proper guidelines. 

Once your submission is approved, you will be notified and can set your YouTube video to public, sharing it across your social media platforms, tagging @Beatport and @PioneerDJGlobal using the hashtag #BeatportsBigBreak.

Then, a panel of judges from Pioneer DJ and Beatport’s curation team will review each performance and select the top eight finalists. 

Finalists will be asked to perform an hour-long set for the competition livestream on Beatport’s Twitch channel. This occurs on the last Friday of each month, so be sure to keep this day free in your diary in case you are chosen as a winner!

Eight finalists will be chosen by Beatport and Pioneer DJ each month. These finalists will each win a pair of Pioneer DJ HDJ-CUE1 Bluetooth headphones + 2 Coloured accessory packs, 3 months Beatport LINK PRO+, and be featured on the Beatport Official Twitch Channel.

The 2nd and 3rd place prize packages include 1 year of Beatport LINK PRO+, plugins from Plugin Boutique, a 3 month Loopcloud Subscription, featured Beatport Chart and DM-40BT speakers. 

Keep an eye on the student newsletters for details about future competitions.
