Imagine… you’ve just put your USB’s into the CDJ’s. Scrolling through your playlists, you find that perfect start-of-the-set track. Loading it up, you glance out at the scene in front of you. Groups of people from all over the world are bobbing about on floaties between the line of yachts stretched out in front of you, tryna grab the best spot to dance the afternoon away to the soundtrack you select. Smiling to yourself, you hit play and the madness begins…
Sounds out of this world right? That is where you are gloriously wrong.
We love our resident DJs and are exceptionally lucky to work with some of the most talented up and coming artists from all over the world. In 2022 we are expanding the team and for the first time EVER, it is our pleasure to announce The Yacht Week’s Resident DJ Competition!
What is up for grabs?
We will be selecting two talented artists to join us as The Yacht Week’s resident DJs in Croatia from the 11-18th of June, 2022. As our resident Djs for the week, it will be your job to bring the vibes and keep everyone dancing until the break of dawn at all events. You will be working next to some of the best in the European scene as well as with our own world-class team of superstars.
What is the vibe?
DJing at our events requires DJs to be able to read the crowd and know when to get the party pumping, but also when to play to the moment and warm up the room for an epic night all round. On our Croatia route, we embrace everything including; House (of all kinds), Disco, Hip Hop, RnB, Dancehall, Reggaeton, Moombah and anything you can sing along to.
Who selects the winners?
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges including:
Thomas Morrey - Day 8 Head of Entertainment
In addition to over a decade of experience as a DJ and promoter, Day 8’s resident Australian heads up bookings and everything music-related at The Yacht Week & The Ski Week.
Nina Zrinski - Day 8 Global Account Manager
As one of The Yacht Week’s foremost operations/media/content/partnerships gurus, Nina’s outstanding knowledge of music (surpassing most of our residents) means that not many people ‘get’ The Yacht Week more than this Croatian superstar!
Jack Igglesden - TYW DJ Manager
Having spent the better part of the last few years performing in France and Portugal as a DJ, Jack joining the team last season truly was a sign from Poseidon. Quickly becoming a crowd favourite in Croatia and Greece during 2021, Jack is a seriously experienced performer in his own right and the go to Manager of our resident artists in Croatia.
