Marina Ibiza holds a contest for a DJ to play at Blue Marlin Ibiza next summer

Marina Ibiza and Blue Marlin Ibiza are holding a DJ Contest this Saturday (22 December) from 16:00 to 19:00 hours to choose the best disc jockey out of 7 finalists selected from a total of 68 entrants. The winner will get to play next summer´s music at Blue Marlin Ibiza, which has previously hosted DJ´s Tom Crane, Wally López, Bruce Hill, Sylvain Armand and the two duos Glowinthedark and Goldfish.

7 DJ´s will compete in the final

68 contestants from 12 countries (Spain, Italy, England, Germany, Sweden, United States, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Romania, Belgium, Holland and Zanzibar) sent in their 20-30 minute demo sessions to the panel of judges, and 7 were picked to compete on Saturday for next summer´s coveted DJ job. First in the shortlist by alphabetical order is DJ Deafnoxx, who has been deaf in one ear since birth and so has only half his hearing capacity.

The contest will be broadcast live by radio station Ibiza Sonica, and will include Candi Staton´s Hallelujah Anyway and Electricity by Lee Foss & MK featuring Anabel Englund, along with themes by Betoko, Guti etc.

The contest will be judged by Igor Marijuán, of Ibiza Sonica; Anna Tur, of Ibiza Global Radio; Valentín Huedo, of Blue Marlin Ibiza & Sonica; and Vidal Rodríguez, Blue Marlin Ibiza´s resident DJ, who is from Ibiza. The live broadcast will be presented by the radio station´s director, popular DJ Igor Marijuán.

An incomparable choice for leisure activities

Next Saturday´s DJ contest is just one event in a full programme that helps make Marina Ibiza one of the Mediterranean´s most attractive harbours, not just for the quality of its services and facilities but also for the incomparable choice of leisure activities offered on the marina site by Ibiza´s trendiest hangouts.
