Barcelona’s Marina de Badalon was the closing stage for the final round of “Mazda Drives: The Sound Of Tomorrow DJ Competition. The six lucky artists will be heading to Tomorrowland 2016 this July for likely what is the biggest gig of their career so far: a 1 hour slot performing on the Mazda Sound Of Tomorrow Island stage along side some of the world's biggest artists.
The winners were selected by the six-head jury, consisting of representatives from Mazda and Tomorrowland along with Belgian sensation DJ Lost Frequencies (a.k.a. Felix De Laet). The finale of the competition featured 20 DJs, each of whom played a 15-minute set in Barcelona. Previously, the finalists took part in a number of workshops at local Mazda Space, the company’s European culture and event hub. The workshops focused on areas such as mixing techniques and self-marketing for DJs. De Laet, who is also Mazda’s ambassador for the Mazda Drives: The Sound Of Tomorrow campaign, hosted the latter.
Mazda acts as an exclusive automotive partner to Tomorrowland for the second year in a row. It’s a relationship fuelled by a desire to deliver life-changing experiences. After prevailing from among more than 1,000 entrants to the competition, which kicked off back in March, the next stage for the winning artists is to take the stage at one of the world’s biggest dance music festivals. Tomorrowland 2016 will be held in Boom, Belgium on 22nd-24th July.
