play @ bpm 2015 DJ

If you’ve ever been to BPM, you can’t fail to have been deafened by spotted a steady stream of DJs playing just outside the main entrance. This is known as the PLAY @ BPM stage, which this year is sponsored by dB Technologies, and is an ideal opportunity for DJs of ALL skill levels and styles to get just a little bit more experience (30 minutes to be precise) in front of a crowd of sorts.

Here’s the lowdown:

Nurturing new talent…

Want the chance to perform in front of DJs, industry professionals and electronic music lovers at BPM 2015?

The popular PLAY @ BPM stage – sponsored by dbTechnologies – is an area dedicated to supporting talented new DJs, giving them a platform from which to demonstrate their skills and perform to a crowd. Located at the entrance to BPM 2015, the PLAY @ BPM stage will showcase up-coming DJs playing music from all genres, in a series of 30-minute sets that will continue for the duration of the show.

This isn’t a competition – the opportunity is open to anyone. The PLAY @ BPM stage is where emerging talent gets an unrivalled chance to show their skills to the world.

Apply For A Set

To apply to perform on the PLAY @ BPM stage, DJs should send an email to containing their name, contact details, a brief bio (covering their DJ career/aspirations so far, no matter what level they’re at!) and a link to their best demo mix. This mix can be any style or genre, but an approximate length of 30-minutes is recommended.

Applicants should also include a good-quality image of themselves – for use on the BPM website should their application be successful (fingers crossed!) – and should tell us which of the event’s three days they are available to perform on (BPM runs from Saturday 12 – Monday 14 September).

The deadline for applications is Monday 17 August. Regretfully, due to this feature’s popularity and the limited number of slots, not every DJ who applies can be selected to play. Please also note that, as this is a showcase, DJs selected to perform will still need a BPM ticket in order to visit the exhibition, education sessions, and other performance areas of the event.

So, what are you waiting for? Send your application to now!

Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
