(Toronto) The 2018 edition of 24Hours 24DJs will feature some of the world’s most sought-after DJs in friendly competition.

In 2017, listeners and viewers were excited to have some of Canada’s premier and internationally known DJs taking part in the competition, such as turntablists Skratch Bastid (Redbull Turntablist Champion), DJ Puffy (2016 RedBull ThreeStyle Champion) and DJ Big Rob (Western New York’s club and radio favourite). The 2017 roster also included cultural leader Dr. Jay de Soca Prince, and 10 year old DJ prodigy, Brandon Duke The DJ, (formerly known as Dexterous One), and many more.
Last year, 24Hours 24DJs became a worldwide event: the majority of the competition’s audience on social media and live stream tuned in from Canada and US. However, there was also engagement from as far away as Sweden, Philippines and United Kingdom. The power and reach of social media was undeniable, as a whopping 9.5 million people saw all the involved 24DJS hashtags on Twitter during the two-day broadcast period. From Instagram posts by the participants themselves, to fans sharing and voting for their favorite team, over 1.3 million people were exposed to 24DJS on Instagram.
