Judging Guidelines & Audition Tips:

Make sure to bring your “A” game, a positive attitude with a smile, along with as many of your friends and supporters as you can round up to attend and keep the energy high!


The judges will evaluate DJs on the 3 following criteria: Music Selection, Mixing Flow, and Stage Presence.

You must mix out of the DJ before you go without stopping down on the music, as this is how it will be played at Denver PrideFest.

Go-Go Dancers

The audience is voting, so bring your friends and family with you! Are you entertaining? Do you have high energy? Do you have stage presence and an ability to connect with the audience?
