(Toronto) On Tuesday May 8th and Wednesday May 9th, 24DJs will present the 2018 edition of the 24Hours 24DJs competition. As Canada’s first and only 24-hour broadcast DJ event for the past 8 years, the organizers are pleased to offer such a unique and innovative experience for attending audiences, and DJ culture enthusiasts, while using this opportunity to provide a platform for some of the world’s most sought-after DJs. The 2018 edition of 24Hours 24DJs will be broadcast LIVE on VIBE105 and viewers will also be able to engage via Facebook Live stream. The competition goes to air on Tuesday May 8th, starting at noon EST.
This year’s theme, Team 416 Versus Team Flight, will pit some of Toronto’s best DJs against DJs from across Canada and the world, in a friendly and entertaining competition.
Listeners and viewers have an opportunity to engage with their favourite DJ by voting via various social media platforms. Each DJ set is also judged by a panel of music industry performers and trendsetters, who are knowledgeable about DJ culture and skillset.
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 (having worked with the likes of Billboard chart topping artists Major Lazer, Machel Montano), and 10 year old DJ prodigy, Dexterous One, and many more.
2018 promises to be even more exciting, with the return of some familiar faces and crowd favourites, along with introducing new DJs from across Canada and beyond. Competitors in this year’s marathon will be announced on Friday April 13th. Check the www.24DJs.ca website for updates.
