Over a weeklong series of world-class music events, each DJ will engineer and perform a crowd pumping, 15-minute music set mixing at least three genres of music to a full house of concertgoers and judges, in order to showcases technical prowess and melt the dance floor. All will come down to the World Championship final competition on November 9, where the last five DJs standing will battle for ultimate sonic supremacy and the most coveted DJ title on earth.
