Last year Toronto hosted the Red Bull Thre3Style DJ Championship World Finals and while this year the finals will take place in Baku, Azerbaijan, three Canadian cities will open their doors to National Finals.
16 Canadian DJs have been selected and will be competing for a chance to go to the finals this summer. This season there will only be two Regional Qualifiers throughout the month of July: Calgary, representing Western Canada and Toronto, representing Eastern Canada with the Nationals taking place in Vancouver, where it all begun over a decade ago. All competitors will get their chance to battle for sonic supremacy with an original 15-minute mix. At the end only one DJ will represent Canada in Thre3Style World Finals in Baku.
