QULT Talent contest

QULT will be hosting the White stage of Defqon.1 festival again. This year you get the change to play at this stage. QULT is looking for DJ/Producers with new energetic music that fits the QULT sound.

Do you have your own unique sound? Or are you producing a set style? Everyone is welcome to enter this contest, both experienced and inexperienced, young and old. Challenge yourself to create something that fits the QULT SOUND.


You may have recently finished a production that perfectly fits the QULT sound, or you could be eager to get something new and exciting started. If the latter is the case, and you are not yet familiar with QULT, you might want to check out some inspirational material below.

We made a compilation of live sets that embody the QULT sound and energy.


To enter the contest we require the following:

– Mix a 20/30-minute set;
– Include a track you produced;
– Add you track as separate mp3;
– Include a track list as a text file;
– Compose your filename as followed: Artistname.Surname.Age.Residence.Email * E.g. “John.Doe.31.Amsterdam.johndoe@gmail.com”
– Upload to WeTransfer;
– Send your set to contest@q-dance.com;
– The file needs to be in MP3 format

The deadline of the contest is the 26th of may.


The QULT-team will be joined by DJ Geck-E to check out all entries. The judging of the contest will be straightforward: the person with the best production and mix wins a spot at Defqon.1 festival. Nonetheless, we will take each and every potential entry in to account. We are always looking for fresh talent for our QULT events at the WesterUnie in Amsterdam. If you have any questions, please let us know at info@qlubunderground.nl.


The winner of the contest will play at the White area of Defqon.1 Festival 2013. The winner can also stay at Defqon.1 for the entire festival and can bring one friend. You will stay at the campsite in a Defqon.1 tent.

The prize does not include travel. You need to be 18 years or older to enter the contest.
