Both Last Night a DJ Foundation and Bluesky Pie passionately believe that introducing one small positive change into a young persons life can produce amazing changes to them and subsequently through their engagement benefit their community. This is the very basis of our DJ competition.
Wh have launched a national DJ competition like no other. This competition is not just about 1 DJ winning a prize; it is about changing the lives and the communities of everyone involved.
Although the winning DJ will receive a life changing prize that could see them going on to become a professional DJ including playing an historic set at House of Commons along side an A list DJ. We will also be using young volunteers to help run each event with promoting, in sound, lighting, stage management, film making, journalism and a host of other activities.
We have many years experience promoting young people through music and working in the music industry in areas with serious social issues and we have helped many young people change their lives by now working in or going to university to become qualified to work in the music industry. We are now looking to achieve this same goal nationwide.
