Serato x Nuits Sonores DJ Mix Competition

Serato and Nuits Sonores, are joining forces to deliver one special night of musical magic. The Nuits Sonores festival, held each May in Lyon, France, is a showpiece of forward thinking electronic music and visual arts. It’s a highlight of the year with a superbly curated lineup of artists from all ends of the spectrum. We are excited to present our own show with native Detroit producer, Recloose as well as techno legend Dave Clarke. 

Here’s how you can win the opening set at the Serato Presents: Recloose + Dave Clarke show, including flights, accommodation and festival passes.

  • Upload a mix of no longer than 40 minutes on Mixcloud
  • Title the mix “Serato x Nuits Sonores - (title of your choice)”

  • Write a short biography including your DJ name in no more than 150 words
  • Add your tracklist
