Love electronic music? Of course, you do. You partied so hard in LaBoracay last summer, your brain almost fell out your ear.
At the Red Bull Thre3style parties, the energy drink takes that love for electronic music to a whole new level of appreciation as it turns the focus on the actual party-starters: the DJs. In this global contest, the world's best DJs are pit together in a battle of turntable wizardry, and the ability to make people dance.
Each competitor is given 15 minutes on the stage, in which they'll be judged for their technical ability, originality, and how the crowd reacts to them. So, yes, party animal, here's a chance for you to come out and show your love for your favorite DJs!
