Outlook Festival Soundclash Mix Project

A chance to win a trip to Outlook Festival in Croatia and a DJ set!

Outlook Festival x Mixcloud

We join forces with Mixcloud this year to present a sound system soundclash mix competition unlike any other. Calling upon the extended Outlook network of artists, promoters and labels to help judge the competition, if you’re a DJ – we want to hear from you!

The competition will be split across key genres of music represented at Outlook Festival, being:

DUB / REGGAE (judged by Shepdog (Nice UP!) )
D&B (judged by Kyrist (Dispatch))
DUBSTEP (Judges: Bloodline (Hatcha & Youngsta))
HIP HOP (Judge: Andy H)
GRIME (Judge: Grandmixxer)
GARAGE (Judge: Barely Legal)
Each competition entry must predominantly fit into one of these genres – we’re always open to new ideas though so feel free to be creative with this!

There will be two phases to the competition:

Phase one: best in class

All of the mixes will be judged by the leading DJ for that genre (listed above) and one winning mix per genre will be picked. The six winners will be announced on or around 17th July 2018.

Phase two: Soundclash champion

One entrant will be crowned Soundclash champion, which will be decided by Outlook Festival and its extended network of DJ’s, promoters and labels. The Soundclash champion will be announced or or around 20th July 2018.

There will be prizes for the Soundclash champion and the 5 runner ups.
