Search for A Superstar DJ

The Riverside Festival – one of the biggest events in Scottish electronic music. Now the organisers are searching for the next big thing. Are you the next Superstar DJ?

Each year, the banks of the Clyde pulsate as the Riverside Festival brings the very best Electronic and Techno music to Glasgow. The organisation also supports local DJs on the club scene, supporting the very real talent that Glasgow has to offer.

Looking to next year, the Riverside Team are launching a competition to find the very best talent and give them a spot on the Satellite Stage at the event. The competition is open to artists of all backgrounds and experience. This really is the opportunity of a lifetime, providing a platform for showcasing new talent. And the Satellite Stage is dedicated to nurturing and supporting this talent. Each winner will receive a dedicated slot on the stage at the Festival, to be held on the late May bank holiday 2024.

Open To All

Dave Clark, Riverside Festival’s co-director says ‘Whether you DJ in a bar or club, play after-hours, keep the vibe flowing at late night flat parties, provide the best warm-up in town, or even mix tracks in your bedroom but haven’t yet played in public, this competition could be your big break’.

Dave goes on to say ‘At Riverside Festival, it is extremely important for us to book international DJs – however, supporting local talent is equally important, as we want Scotland’s vibrant scene to grow and flourish. So, get your mixes in now, and next year you could be playing to one of the best crowds in the country.’

Submissions are open from now until Thursday, September 28 at 4pm, after which a top 10 shortlist, compiled by the Riverside Festival Team, will be put to a public vote. The top 6 entries will then perform live at The Locale Open Decks Night hosted by All U Need on Thursday, October 12th, with winners then announced on Friday, October 20.

All submitted mixes must be 20 minutes long, and entrants can find further information on the application form and Riverside Festival’s Instagram page.
