During the night, our Main Events room comes alive with lights, cameras, party animals, and lots of amazing music. Feel like groovin’ out to a nice, simple dance beat? Need something a little more hardcore? Let our wide variety of community-sourced DJs rock your paws off.

DJ Application Procedure

DJ’s will be chosen out of the audition pool so please ensure your application is submitted before the cutoff. We accept demos as a link entered on the application form. It can be a direct link to the audition mix via soundcloud, mixcloud, dropbox link etc. DJ auditions are open at the moment, the cutoff for submissions is 11:59PM EDT December 31st 2019.

  • Demos must be a MINIMUM of twenty five (25) minutes but no longer than sixty (60) minutes. Your demo should be reflect the styles and genres you plan to spin at the Furnal Equinox dances.
  • DJ’s will be picked based on their mixing skill, music selections, style as well as trends within the fandom. We do hope you keep in mind the taste of our attendees when selecting tracks.
  • You are not allowed to switch genres but you may switch and adjust tracks as per creative license. If the dance team asks for you to switch genres (from your alternative genre list on the application), reasons may be conditional to you getting a slot on the Furnal Equinox lineup.
  • Placement of sets is a decision made by the dance staff and cannot be changed, If you cannot make a certain night for various reasons please put that in the notes of your application, the dance team will try to accommodate.

Group (or B2B) sets are encouraged. To submit those sets, either:

  • Each member submits their own mix but under “DJ name” on the application use the name of the group, or alternatively, list each member (including yourself).
  • The group submits one mix that they’ve created together and under “DJ Name” place the group name as well as list each member.

If you are chosen, you will be emailed with additional info for your DJ set. If you are not selected, you will be notified by email too – you may request the reasoning and/or feedback for not being selected; however, responses for feedback may take some time. While responses and feedback are a courtesy for all applicants, all decisions are final – we ask that you respect the decisions made by the dance staff, who are ensuring the best possible experience for Furnal Equinox’s dances.

Good Luck and happy mixing. We look forward to hearing your demo.
