*COMPETITION HAS ENDED*
As part of the run up to the festival we are running a DJ mix competition to give one lucky selector the opportunity to play at Farr Festival 2018, 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. If you are in need for some inspiration check out Results: Farr Festival 2017 DJ Mix Competition
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 2018.
The runner up will win a pair of weekend tickets to Farr Festival 2018.
