Farr Festival 2017 DJ Mix Competition



As part of the run up to Farr Festival 2017 we are running a DJ mix competition to give one lucky selector the opportunity to play at Farr Festival, plus a pair of weekend tickets.

So what exactly are we looking for? The art of the DJ ultimately drills down to your musical knowledge, track selection, technical ability and your capability of reading a crowd to create an unforgettable atmosphere.

We are looking for someone who has invested the time and effort to explore the finer recesses of music new and old. Track selection is key. We are not looking for someone to reel off the latest hits. We are after a true selector. For inspiration check out the Farr Festival x Inverted Audio "Into The Woods" podcast series on Soundcloud.


The winner will be announced in May and will win a DJ set at the festival plus a pair of weekend tickets to Farr Festival 2017. 

The runner up will win a pair of weekend tickets to Farr Festival 2017.


Record a 60 minute mix (vinyl, CD or digital) and upload it to Mixcloud. Musically anything goes as long as it fits our musical ethos. Those who dig a bit deeper and show some individuality always shine through.

- Deadline for entries 1st April 2017.

- Use the cover art provided here.

As always-technical ability is important but track selection, atmosphere and individuality is what really sets entrants apart. This competition is for real selectors, so pull out your hidden gems! The winner of the competition will perform a set at Farr Festival and enjoy a weekend exploring the sounds and experiences of the woods.


- Entrants will be judged on track selection, originality, atmosphere and technical ability.

- All genres that fit the Farr Festival sound are fully welcomed.

- Preferably you’ll be a vinyl DJ, but we will also accept CD and digital mixes.

- The judging will be undertaken by a panel of industry experts.

- The final decision lies with Farr Festival.
