As artists, producers, and music lovers, we at Dirtybird LOVE how much our community has become creatively inspired to learn and pursue their passions in music. We have teamed up with Mixcloud to continue into another year of the DJ Contest. Now it’s time we give our fans the opportunity to show their skills and get a taste of what life's like on the other side of the tables. Afterall, Dirtybird Campout is all about supporting the community and our incredible festival family!

All you need to do is create a NEW 30-minute mini-mix (no longer) inspired by any and all things Dirtybird Campout. One winner will be chosen on the basis of popularity by community votes and the expert opinions of our judges. Feel free to do special edits, sneak in unreleased music and go for it all the way. The mix will be judged on originality, vibe, and flow by Claude himself.

PLEASE READ ALL of the instructions, qualifications, and rules before you get started to be 100% sure you’re eligible to participate. Limited to one entry per person - duplicate submissions and entrants will be disqualified.

We can't wait to hear you express yourself through sound!
