Dubbed as “The World’s Largest DJ Competition”, the Red Bull Thre3style has definitely grown to include competitors from many different countries. Every year since 2010, one talented DJ is crowned the coveted title of Red Bull Thre3style World Champion. The handful of winners may be small now but they are ready to welcome one more member this year. But first, 12 DJ’s from across the nation will have to prove themselves in the USA Championship taking place in Phoenix, AZ on April 2-4. Get all the details after the jump.
The finalists will first compete in two groups, one group on day one while the other group on day two. On the last day, April 4, two DJ’s from each group will go head to head on the turntables. The winner will represent USA in the World Finals taking place in Tokyo, Japan.
Judges will include DJ Jazzy Jeff, Z-Trip and Four Color Zack (2012 World Champion). Technicality, originality, skill, creativity, crowd engagement and stage presence are some the things these judges will be looking for.
