Are you or someone you know the next superstar DJ? Got mad skills that need an audience? Then the sold-out Groove Cruise wants to hear from aspiring DJs as they launch their annual Undiscovered DJ competition. If you have the skills to pay the bills, then you could earn a slot playing on the 16th-annual Groove Cruise sailing from Miami to Costa Maya from January 9-13, 2020.

Headlining the world’s premier electronic music cruise are internationally acclaimed artists Above & Beyond, KSHMR, Loco Dice, Markus Schulz, Nora en Pure, Roger Sanchez, Solarstone, Cocodrills, and 40 other artists who the winner will appear alongside, plus a free stateroom for the winner and a guest aboard the Celebrity Infinity, as well as airfare for two (a prize worth more than $3,500!). What’s more, the winning mix will also be featured on Groove Cruise Radio with an audience of more than 100,000 subscribers. The second-place mix picks up a fantastic prize in the form of Two Adam Audio A8X Studio Monitors (valued at $2,000) courtesy of contest platform partner SoonVibes.
