Spinnin’ Records, Parookaville and Penny Present DJ/producer Contest

German dance festival Parookaville and supermarket chain Penny are doing a DJ Contest this year together with Spinnin’ Records. Prizes are a DJ set at the festival, a major Pioneer package and an official release on Spinnin’s Talent Pool label. Besides this, people who vote for tracks also get the chance to win travel arrangements + tickets for big club/festival events.

Parookaville (15-17 July at Airport Weeze) is one of Germany’s most renowned dance festivals, working together with sponsor Penny and music partner Spinnin’ Records to look for the best new DJ/producer talent out there.

What they are looking for is an original track, which can be uploaded at a special page at Spinnin’s Talent Pool website. The best tracks will be listened to by a professional jury, including world famous DJ/producer Sam Feldt, a Spinnin’ A&R, Parookaville initiator Bernd Dicks and Marcus Haus, the Head of Marketing at Penny.

After this, five finalists will be flown to Parookaville to play a special DJ set the day before the festival officially kicks off. Again, the jury will judge the performance and choose the winner, who’ll play the festival’s Deep Blue Stage on Friday 15 July for about 50.000 people! Besides this, he/she also wins the full prize package:

2 x CDJ-2000NXS2 (Player)
