While the art of the DJ continues to evolve, it remains true to one objective: rock the party. It’s time to get the party started and ignite clubgoers across Canada 15 minutes at a time, as Red Bull Thre3style officially begins its search for the country’s Best Party Rocker DJ. Hitting over 20 cities across Canada, Red Bull Thre3style will featured the best local DJs throwing down their best party sets. The challenge: each DJ needed to deliver 15 minutes of sonic infamy that incorporates a minimum of 3 genres of music. The constant: a pulsating, all-in all-out crowd. DJs from all across Canada will battled it out to make it through to the Red Bull Thre3style Canadian Finals, which is set for May 26, 2012 in Halifax, NS. Making its way to the East Coast for the very first time, the Red Bull Thre3style National Finals will takeover with talent from all over the country - from Dubstep, to Pop, from Hip Hop to Rock.
DJs IV (Halifax), DJ Friktion (Port Moody), DJ Charly Hustle (Saskatoon), DJ Shub (Fort Erie), DJ Henward (Montreal), battled their way through 18 qualifying events and ultimately 5 Red Bull Thre3style regional finals, which will allowed the 5 winning DJs to compete in a major city to some of the biggest and liveliest audiences of their careers. These five talented party rockers, will make their way to the National Finals in Halifax on May 26. The winner will be moving onto the Red Bull Thre3style World Finals and representing Canada in Chicago, IL in September.
How these DJs will get to the Red Bull Thre3style World Final remains the same: Take talented DJs from across Canada, add 15 minutes of DJing, mix it in with three musical genres, bring flair, originality and swagger and you got a Red Bull Thre3style Champion!
