Red Bull Thre3style pits the world’s best DJs in a competition that values technical skill as much as the ability to thrill a dance floor with mad dj skills. Competitors are judged on the dual platforms of technical ability and crowd reaction, and are given just 15 minutes each to prove that they’re the best in the room. Judges work to a strict criteria that also marks DJs on their originality in song choices, confidence performing and mixing prowess. Thre3style’s roots lie in Canada, but the idea behind the competition is global: get people dancing, keep the party vibes coming and up your game until you’re the DJ that brings the perfect set.

The Rules

Each DJ has to play a minimum of 3 genres. In the spirit of Geoffrey Sumner – “This is supposed to be a journey into sound. A journey which along the way will bring us new value, new color, new dimenson.” We are sure you get the drift. Every competitor gets one 15 minute performance with the goal to impress the judges and excite the crowd. No matter what level of the competition you are participating in, the judges of your Thre3style performance will be using these criteria:

  • 20% Originality of your Track Selection
    (White Labels, Edits, Own Routines, Dubplates)
  • 30% Creativity of your mixing
    (Composition, Blends, Note Play, Word Play)
  • 30% Technicality of your mixing
    (Cutting, Scratching, Juggling, etc.)
  • 10% Stage Presence
    (You don’t have to wile out to have stage presence)
    This is important!
  • 10% Crowd Response
    (You leave them wanting more)
