ANTS, Ushuaïa Ibiza and Beatport are teaming up to offer an aspiring DJ the chance to play on the White Isle this summer.
With 2023 marking a decade of Andrea Oliva's ANTS party in Ibiza, the colony are marking the milestone with a packed season schedule — as well as finding a brand new DJ to join its ranks.
As well as performing on the iconic poolside stage at Ushuaïa, the winner of the ANTS: NEXT GEN competition will also also play a set when ANTS goes on tour, receive expert career mentorship, take part in a production masterclass with ANTS resident DJ, Francisco Allendes, record a guest mix for ANTS Radio, and much more.
How to enter:
1. Record a 30-35 minute mix in line with the sound of ANTS
2. Upload the mix to your Soundcloud profile. The mix title should be: ANTS: NEXT GEN - Mix by DJ ***name here***
3. Use ANTS: NEXT GEN artwork as a thumbnail (available here)
4. Add the following hashtags #ANTS10YEARSSTRONG #ANTSNEXTGEN
5. Add the tracklist, your email address & social media channels in the mix description
6. Share the mix on your social media channels to your stories & feed, tagging @unitedants. When posting use the assets available to download here
The mixes will be judged on three key criteria: likes, plays and expert evaluations, which will come from judges like ANTS boss Andrea Oliva, residents SYREETA, Chelina Manuhutu, SYREETA and Nic Fanciulli, CEO & founder of Ushuaïa Yann Pissenem, and more.
The top ten mixes will be revealed on the 17th May, before the winning mix is announced on the 31st May.
