Luminosity and afterhours.fm are organizing a dj contest where the best 23 mixes will be broadcasted and the best dj will win a gig at the Luminosity Before the Energy event!
This contest is for upcoming dj's and producers and gives talented people the opportunity to breakthrough in the international dance and club scene.
