Tiesto Brings ‘Your Shot’ DJ Competition to the U.S.
'Your Shot,' an Australian DJ competition that began in 2010, is now coming to the United States led by superstar DJ-producer Tiesto. This 10-part web series that will air on Vevo, will document the journeys of 30 aspiring DJ’s as they are provided with extensive DJ training and take part in various competitions to ultimately win the chance to perform with Tiesto in Las Vegas and to show off their skills at Ultra Music Festival Miami 2016, as a featured performer on the 7UP sponsored Stage 7.
This competition, however, doesn't require its contestants to have any DJ skills. All that is required is the desire to learn how. The various rounds of the competition will include comprehensive DJ training at the Your Shot Training Academy in Los Angeles and a Los Angeles Showcase event before a packed crowed and panel of judges including Tiesto himself.
Tiesto talks about his excitement for being part of this revolutionary DJ competition, saying, “I’m so excited about Your Shot because it takes the idea of the DJ competition and turns it on its head. This contest really provides aspiring DJs with an opportunity to realize their dreams. Many times people don’t know how or where to get started with DJ’ing but the great thing about Your Shot is that win or lose, they get a platform to learn, grow and achieve great things as long as they are focused and dedicated.”
