Time to get the party started and ignite clubgoers across Canada fifteen minutes at a time. Red Bull Thre3style is preparing for rotation around the country, one city at a time giving each DJ their fifteen minutes of fame. Hitting 10 cities across Canada, Red Bull Thre3Style will feature eight of the best local DJs throwing down their best party sets followed by a special performance from Canadian DJ legend Skratch Bastid.
While the art of the DJ continues to evolve it remains true to one objective: rock the party. Hosted by Canadian musician Curtis Santiago, Red Bull Thre3Style will gather the top DJs at each of the 10 stops with hopes of becoming the best party rocker in Canada. The challenge: deliver 15 minutes of sonic infamy that incorporates a minimum of three genres of music. The constant: the crowd. With over 10,000 people who laid down some fancy footwork with the 80 DJs performing in 2009 the ultimate live party competition for 2010 are high!
Evolution of Red Bull Thre3style
In 2010 Red Bull Thre3Style is a competition to crown the world's most versatile Party-Rock DJ . The industry’s top talent – music writers, musicians, promoters, bloggers and headlining DJ’s - will judge the DJs and evaluate each performer based on creativity, track selection, skills, stage presence, and audience response. The winner of each stop will move on to the National Final set to take place in Toronto on Saturday, March 13, 2010 as part of Canadian Music Week. The winner of the Canadian National Final will earn a trip to play at the World Final in Paris, France in December 2010 and compete against winners from 13 countries and be crowned the first Global Red Bull Thre3Style Champion.
