As part of the run up to this year's Dimensions Festival we are running another global vinyl only mix competition to give one of you the opportunity to be flown to Croatia to play a set at Dimensions 2016. We’re big fans of any DJ who appreciates music and can entertain a crowd - regardless of their preferred format. Be it Serato, CDJs, Traktor or whatever platform you use, it’s all good... But if we’re honest, records and record shops hold a special place in our heart. So we want to take the opportunity to celebrate and champion the dusty fingered crate diggers amongst us. And of course the people behind the counter, the heads who act as the lifeblood of local music communities across the world and put in the hours to keep our beloved music and club scene alive.
- The first prize winner will bag a set on one of the stages at this year’s Dimensions Festival in Croatia
- €250 flight contribution to the Festival and free camping will be included
- The runner up will win a ticket to Dimensions Festival
- Further runner ups will receive records from some of our partner Labels.

The entrants of 2014 blew us away and yet again clearly reinforced the fact we have one of the most musically knowledgeable crowds about. From Afrobeat to Techno, Hip Hop to House the eclecticism of the sets was outstanding. As always technical ability is important but track selection and individuality is what really sets entrants apart. This competition is for the diggers, so pull out some gems!
