You may recall that last summer we tracked the ongoing trials and tribulations of 11 up-and-coming DJs from around Europe as they vied for three coveted spots in burn studios’ residency competition in Ibiza. Now the contest has returned for another big season, and the submission window is open for DJs just like you to be mentored by Steve Lawler, Solomun, Maceo Plex (pictured above), and plenty more music-industry giants—and of course, to find yourself in one of burn’s much-ballyhooed club residencies.
Throughout the contest, each of the finalists is put through numerous resolve- and skill-testing challenges, and is coached along the way by some of dance music’s biggest names. Last year’s competition included sessions with Richie Hawtin, David Guetta, Carl Cox, and Jamie Jones, and this year’s will feature more of the highest-caliber producers and DJs in the world.
So if you think you’ve got what it takes, apply here by March 18 to get in on the action and hopefully secure yourself a place among the next class of the world’s top DJs.
