Miller SoundClash – the global DJ competition run by Miller Genuine Draft – offers aspiring DJs a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play to a packed crowd alongside an A-List headliner at one of the World’s best nightclubs!
Later this month, 18 DJs – each the winner of a national competition – will represent their countries at the Miller SoundClash Grand Finale in Las Vegas.
Far more than your traditional DJ competition, Miller SoundClash is a cultural exchange, where the world’s emerging DJ talent comes together in a hub of creativity and good times. At the core of this exchange is the MGD Hub.
Perched high above the Las Vegas Strip in the penthouse of The Cosmopolitan Hotel, with panoramic views of the city, and Miller Genuine Draft always on ice, the MGD Hub is the competition’s base camp – the place to meet up, get ready for the night ahead or wind down after a hard day’s competition.
The competing DJs arrive in Vegas on Thursday 24th September. They’ll be met at the airport and whisked off to their suites in The Cosmopolitan to regroup before partying at Ghost Bar, which sits an incredible 55 floors above the iconic Palms Hotel & Casino.
Last year’s winning DJs Tom & Collins will provide the Ghost Bar soundtrack, alongside fellow 2014 finalist Guille Preda. The DJs will want to save some energy though; the competition kicks off the next morning...
The Grand Finale is the focal point of Miller SoundClash. Taking place at the iconic Marquee DayClub on Friday 25th September, this is the moment these DJs have been waiting and preparing for! All the sets will be streamed live via Periscope. Keep in the loop about the streamed sets here.
Each DJ will play a set in front of a packed crowd, and judges including Dannic, DJ Mag, and a team of in-the-know bookers from Vegas’ thriving club scene.
To welcome them to the decks, each DJ will receive a gift pack from Miller SoundClash partners UDG and V-Moda. They’ll get personalised V-Moda Crossfade-100 headphones and DJ luggage from UDG.
In a change of format since last year, the SoundClash Finalists will need to wait until Saturday to find out which one of them has taken the crown! They’ll be able to decompress after a hard day’s competition by seeing will be seeing the current No.1 DJ at Hakkasan.
The result will be announced during a lavish dinner at Lavo. The newly-crowned Miller SoundClash champion will be rushed to Drais – in a private, ‘pimped out’ vehicle, no less – ready to play to a packed crowd before Dannic takes to the stage!
All in, this year’s Miller SoundClash is set to be the best yet! So whether you are a DJ who is competing or a fan following the fun online, be sure to follow MGD and DJ Mag on Twitter to keep up to date with the DJs incredible journey through Las Vegas.
