Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2013

The search to find the best student DJ at American universities and colleges is now underway at http://www.CampusDJ.com. The National Finale event will be held in Los Angeles on June 20th at the historic Avalon Hollywood, where this year’s top Campus DJ will be awarded a 4-door 2013 MINI Cooper S Countryman with seating for 5 and a touring package with Live Nation. Regional prizes include awards from Dubbler, Chegg, Jabra, and opening slots on Monster Energy’s Outbreak College Tour.

Campus DJ events will be hosted by college-favorite hypeman Flula Borg and DJ/personality MICK (formerly known as Mick Boogie). While there are other DJ competitions, this is the first-ever exclusively designed for college student DJs. Participants can sign up free for a chance to qualify for a regional competition or Wild Card slot. Winners will advance to the National Finale.

Campus DJ is a sister event to the national College Battle of the Bands, the popular collegiate-music competition that has produced notable finalists including: Mike Posner (Duke), Local Natives (Pepperdine), Rozzi Crane (USC) - the first artist signed to Adam Levine's 222 Records, The Lonely Biscuits (Belmont U) - who went on to win the first ever MTVu College Woodie award in 2013, The John King Band (UGA) - recently signed by Black River Entertainment Group, Raquel Rodriguez (USC), and many more. To date, over $300,000 in prizes has been awarded by College Battle of the Bands.

With an increasing number of DJ submissions to College Battle of the Bands, and the overall rise of DJ culture in the student community, it was time to create an event just for the DJs. Co-founder Evan Shapiro says: “This is the only competition fueled exclusively by student DJs. We are lucky to have great sponsor and prizes to support and help roll out the first-ever events!” Campus DJ will run annually each Spring Semester, with College Battle of the Bands now running in the Fall Semester.

Additionally, this year’s top Campus DJs will be mixing for a cause at the National Finale in June. Each national finalist DJ will be spinning on behalf of their selected charity to earn a cash grant for the cause. Prizes are awarded at the Finale, supported by Chegg for Good, Music for Good, and Electronic Music Alliance’s Play it FWD. Additionally, for this year’s DJ participants that also produce original music, Campus DJ will host a remix contest in association with partners JABRA and Club Create.
