Last year’s DJmag Tech Awards at BPM, Europe’s biggest DJ event, was a phenomenal success and now we are back with a new panel of industry judges for an even bigger and better show.
We will be judging eight categories live at the BPM show, back at Birmingham’s NEC on 2nd – 4th October. Your votes, which have now all been cast, will be counted and the top three products from over eight categories will go through to our amazing live Grand Final.
Manufacturers will have only a few minutes to show off their kit and try to impress our well-groomed judges. There will be tears, there will be laughter, and there will definitely be glory. Our feisty judges will be demanding, and will give the reps a hard time before scoring the products on build, sound quality, features, ease of use, and all importantly value for money.
Once this process has been completed, then — and only then — will the winners be announced and presented with their well-earned awards.
The scene has changed massively, and so have the demands on the technology. The digital revolution is well and truly upon us and if you cast your vote this year, then you've played your part in shaping it.
If that wasn't good enough, DJMag have teamed up with the Pioneer DJs to host the official after-party at the HMV Institute, a brand new £4 million 1,500 capacity venue.
With a superb line-up that includes the technical wizardry of the wizard haired James Zabiela and multi-limbed beat abusers Scratch Perverts, the deep rumbling dubstep of Mary Anne Hobbs and Zinc's crack house, it promises to leave many a sore head come Sunday. Full details below.
