How it Works

  • The Prize

    The winning DJ will win a prize to the value of R120 000. More details to follow soon!

  • How the Competition Works

    The competition starts on the 1st of June 2019 and ends on the 30th of November 2019, both days included. Entries received outside the stipulated competition periods will not be considered.

    1. Register on the Viceroy Makoya Mix WhatsApp line: +27600703817
    2. Download the Viceroy Makoya Mix pulse here.
    3. Incorporate the Viceroy Makoya Mix beat/pulse needs to be incorporated in your 3-minute demo.
    4. 4. Submit the audio via the WhatsApp line, as part of your entry into the DJ Search competition.

    The 20 best audios per participating venue (there are 24 venues nationally taking part) will be selected and contacted to perform live, for 5 minutes, in front of the Judges for the area events. One winner per venue will be chosen – the judges’ decision is final.

    The winners from the area events will then advance to the regional finals (there are 6 venues taking part in the regional finals); where you will get to perform for 10 minutes. One winner per venue will be chosen to advance to the Grand Finale - again the judges’ decision is final.

    The 6 winners from the area finals will each receive 2x half day mentorship sessions from the Judges.

    All travel arrangements will be done by Viceroy if and when necessary.

    The 6 winners will get to perform for 10 minutes at the Grand Finale where the ultimate Makoya DJ will be selected. The finale will take place in the Western Cape and travel & accommodation for the 6 winners will be taken care of by Viceroy if they live outside the area.
