Call for DJS for fes­ti­val spin

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Front Page -

Grampians Mu­sic Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers are look­ing for re­gional Vic­to­ri­ans ‘with an in­sane mu­sic col­lec­tion and a pas­sion for per­for­mance’.

They are look­ing for DJS to ‘spin some wax’ on a Halls Gap Val­ley Floor Stage in a re­gional DJ com­pe­ti­tion.

Fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Carly Flec­k­noe said last year’s in­au­gu­ral com­pe­ti­tion was a hit, with DJ Zatchie from Stawell, whose real name is Zac Walker, win­ning the top gong.

Ms Flec­k­noe said the team be­hind the fes­ti­val, from Fe­bru­ary 2 to 4, was keen to pro­mote, en­cour­age and sup­port re­gional Vic­to­rian artists and the DJ com­pe­ti­tion was one way that qual­i­fied.

Zatchie said the win had helped his ca­reer and urged any­one who loved to DJ to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion.

“I had the op­por­tu­nity to play on the main stage and close out Fri­day night at the fes­ti­val, which, while it was ter­ri­fy­ing, was an ab­so­lutely sur­real ex­pe­ri­ence and one that I would not change for the world,” he said.

“Dur­ing the week­end I also played be­tween band sets, which gave me heaps more ex­po­sure and fur­thered my DJ ca­reer.

“It was def­i­nitely one of the best ex­pe­ri­ences I’ve ever had.”

The win­ner of the DJ com­pe­ti­tion gets to head­line the first night of the fes­ti­val, known as Best of the West for its re­gional Vic­to­rian artist line-up, play be­tween sets along­side some of the coun­try’s best mu­si­cal tal­ent, and gets a VIP ticket pack­age for them­selves and a friend.

En­tries for the DJ com­pe­ti­tion are open.
