Contest Alert! Interview Your Favorite DJ @ CounterPoint

DJTT is goin’ down south this fall to check out the brand new Counterpoint Music Festival – and we want one of you to come with us! Ean explains the basics of the contest and how to enter inside. We are providing one lucky reader with a pair of tickets, backstage access and the chance to interview your favorite DJ. Continue reading after the break for all the details…

How to Win? 

To win the contest, just post your own YouTube video as a response to the original and tell us:

  • Why are you the best person to represent DJTT and the South and interview a famous DJ?
  • What would you ask your favorite DJ at the festival?
  • Be creative – don’t hold back!

Show us why you’re the perfect person to come with us to the festival – be creative and let us know what artist you’d interview in your video response! Video responses are easy to post – just click in the comment box on the video and then the “Post a video response” option will show up.

  • Gain support for your entry on social media – get your friends to share your video and use #DJTTgoesSouth to stay on our radar.
  • The contest is open to anyone who can provide their own travel to the festival.
  • Winner will receive two Guest passes to the festival: one backstage pass and a backstage camping pass.
  • You’ll get a chance to hang out with Ean and the DJTT crew along with meeting and interviewing your favorite DJ.

We’ll be choosing a winner two weeks from today – September 7th. 

Learn more about the Counterpoint Music Festival, see the lineup, and purchase your own tickets here!

The festival is just outside of Atlanta, Georgia and is on September 27th – 29th, just over a month away.
For those of you who might have gone to the Echo Project in 2007, it’s being run in the same spot. With an incredible lineup including tents curated by Fools Gold and Pretty Lights Music, it’s sure to be an event not to miss if you’re in the area.

We’re considering having a DJTT meetup at the event since we rarely make it to the other side of the US, let alone the south-east!  Also a note to our non-American readers – we’ll hopefully be doing something in your country soon, let us know in the comments where you want us to show up.

  • tim williams

    so when did the contest end? I was going to submit, and then I noticed you were picking a winner on 9/7. I was most interested in speaking w/ a few artists about their live stage set up, and their thoughts on the rise of edm in the us. And, where they expect themselves and the scene to be in five years. And, I would be interested in speaking with ean about some technical stuff too, Cheers.

      Tim! Go ahead and submit, we’re reviewing the entries on Monday 😀

  • I am competing to perform at Counterpoint Festival, trying to bring some House in that mug so listen to my mix and vote for me if you like it and share thanks!

    Look out, your boi Trevor D from UNC is about to make a bangin’ entry 😀

  • I may be DJing this, I’m open for interviews 😉

  • tman

    come to south africa preferably Cape Town

  • Daniel

    when you say ‘two guest passes’ does that mean 2 backstage passes and 2 camping passes or one of each?

  • “Gain support for your entry on social media – get your friends to share your video and use”
    Huge fucking anti-kudos on that. What the fuck happened to the best entry wins? Anybody with 250 dollars can hire a fucking botnet to vote for them.
    You just lost a lot of respect in my eyes, and I hope more people feel the same way.
    In conclusion; Fuck you DJ Tech Tools.

    • Spacecamp

      Social media and likes will NOT determine the winner, but for obvious reasons we want to encourage that people use their promotion skills to make sure people see their video – we want tons of people making entries and auditioning to come with us! There’s no “voting” in this contest, Ean and myself and the DJTT team will be choosing and watching.

      • Promotion skills? You mean bothering people? How annoying do find the DJ MAG spam that comes each year? Or people begging for votes in remix compos? This is 90% the same thing. Except people have no incentive to go check out a ‘mock interview’. Big friendlist does not = talented. It only means you have no real life. And I can say that, because I have no real life. Hah.

        It’s very clear that you want to use this as a way to promote DJTT, but I’m telling you right now, “social medias” (and esp facebook+twitter) are fucking passé. There are other ways to promote a website, that are far more lucrative when it comes to visitor numbers, that won’t make you look like fucking sheep. This contest is more likely to hurt the image of DJTT, in the eyes of existing users, than bring in new visitors. If you want some pointers as to how to attract new users in innovative ways, give me a call, if not, keep doing what you’re doing while you watch the visitor numbers keep going down.

    Love to See DJTT in Toronto we have a bunch of different genres here you will be pleased Soca & Zouk etc.

  • skerrplunk

    I will definitely be there with a bunch of friends. Helps that I live in Atlanta. I’m really excited to hear that DJTT will be there. You guys definitely need to have a meet up!

  • Mysteryland 2012 is tomorrow, the mother of all party’s!

    • b

      And i am gonna be there..edlx!

      • See you there 😉 (and the 59.999 other people too 😛

        • They use the metric system there… that’s 59 thousand nine hundred and ninety nine, not 59 point 999 people… BIG difference.

  • I live in Atlanta and I am not too stocked about his festival. Looking at the line up, its not as diverse as I think it could be. No techno, house type music,no trance, just a bunch of bass oriented music and then the like famous guys; avicii, skrillex, steve angello etc.

    • no techno no trance…..sounds like an awesome party.

      • tr4gik

        lololool …
