Aspiring DJ spinners going to Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in Beauly (2nd and 3rd August) have an opportunity to play at Scotland’s number one boutique festival.

Bella is partnering with Headphone Disco to offer four 30 minute DJ slots over the course of the festival weekend. Lucky winners will get to perform alongside Headphone Disco’s resident DJs from the silent disco stage located in the Hothouse.

They’ll take over one channel of Headphone Disco’s two-channel silent party for a full hour and perform in front of a potential audience of thousands.

Entrants just need to upload a 20 minute DJ mix to Soundcloud, forward the link to competitions@headphonedisco.com and the judges will select the four best entries, each of whom will get the chance to shine from the big stage.

The deadline for entries is Monday 1st July and winners will be announced on the Bella Facebook page on Friday 12th July.

The judges are looking for exciting mixes that inspire them, reflect the Bella vibe and ethos and which will work well in front of a typical Bella crowd. Get creative, think eclectic and let’s see if you’ve got what it takes to rock the party!

Belladrum 2013 takes place in the beautiful Highland surroundings of Belladrum Estate, near Beauly in Inverness-shire.

The independent festival has built a reputation for its eclectic line-ups, its offbeat non-musical entertainments and its all-ages approach. It’s won a VisitScotland Thistle Award in 2009 and is a past winner of the Grassroots Festival Award at the UK Festival Awards, the festival industry’s ‘Oscars’.

The 2013 festival theme is ‘Carnival’, in keeping with the birthday party atmosphere the milestone event is bound to create.
