Share/Bookmark
Turntable, it’s time for you to decide who’ll be DJing at our SXSW Interactive event! We’ve got some great DJs lined up to battle it out for the spot. Rockstars from all over Turntable are going to play the music that they love. There are no genre restrictions, so you should be ready to hear anything! Seriously, it’s going to be insane.

From 6-10pm EST on 3/5 and 3/6 it’s all going down in turntable.fm/intel_dj_battle. Every hour a new group of DJs will take the stage. Whoever in the group gets the most points advances on to the semi finals. The semi final match ups will start at 7pm EST on 3/7. The two DJs that make it through the semi finals will move right on the the final battle at 9pm. The winner will rock the party at SXSW on 3/10!

Now, if that wasn’t enough for you, we’ve invited some guests. We’ve added a music writer to every match-up in the first round. Paul de Revere from Consequence of Sound, Katie Bain from The Huffington Post + Elektro Daily, Daniel Pinchbeck from Reality Sandwich, Jeremiah Alexis from Urban Nomad + OC Weekly, Josh Glazer from URB Magazine, Dev Sherlock from Hype Machine, Eddie “Stats” Houghton from Okayplayer, and Parker Doty from Hipster Wave will be throwing down tunes with us. We want everyone to hear about the amazing music and the wicked awesome communities that happen on Turntable. You’re going to knock their socks off!
