Rise & Shine DJ Contest | Play a set at SAMF!

Congrats to DoBadlyy for winning this year’s Rise & Shine DJ Competition!  Check out their tunes in the Soundcloud player below.  Be sure to catch their set at the fest, you never know who’s going to blow up!  And congrats to Jitsu and Emerald Lake for being chosen as Runners Up and winning Free passes to the fest.


More than landing that superstar DJ booking, what gets us excited is discovering up-and-coming talent. So like we do every year, we’re thrilled to give one aspiring dj the chance to play a set at Spring Awakening 2019 with a dj contest we call, Rise & Shine!

The Winner will play a set on Saturday June 8th and receive Four  (4 ) Weekend Passes. Two Runner Up DJs will each win a pair of Weekend Passes.

Winners will be chosen out of the Top Ten Vote Getters, but this isn’t solely a popularity contest. Veteran industry judges will pick a winner out of the Top Ten Vote Getters based on the overall mix and quality of production, so Djs will need to lay down their best mix or original production to win.

Submissions and voting close on May 7th 2019 at 12:00 pm CST. Winners will be announced soon after.
