WOMEX will present a specialised DJ Summit for the sixth year running. Our jury-selected line-up allows eclectic international DJs to bring their global club sounds to wider world music industry. We encourage DJs of any genre, medium and background to apply, and to bring their sounds to the world!
The WOMEX 18 Call for Proposals will open in January 2018.
The WOMEX DJ Summit has grown to become one of the most popular programme elements, with customised club nights that feature a cherry-picked line-up of DJs highlighting the trends, sounds and beats featured on dancefloors across the world.
DJs from all musical backgrounds are encouraged to submit a proposal. Whatever you do, wherever you come from, our Jury wants to hear the best from all artists who deserve wider audiences and have the professional standards necessary to tour.
In case you would like to propose a showcase that is not a conventional DJ set (CD, Vinyl, Laptop, etc.) but instead a live show with additional musicians, you should instead submit a regular showcase proposal.
Important: Funding: Please note that WOMEX is not in the position to cover any fees, travel expenses or other costs. What we do provide is the stage, the necessary equipment to perform, local transport to and from the airport and the venue, and our extensive promotional treatment on equal basis with all other WOMEX Showcase artists. That includes promotion of the show itself, newsletters, online promo, publication of full bios and contact details in our WOMEX Guide, and much more. Additionally, all invited artists will get free full access to all features of WOMEX, plus one free registration for our partner of agreement (the artist representative).
So, if you want to propose a DJ-case, please think carefully about financing and let the Jury know what support or funding you have.
We can't wait to hear your wonderful submissions!
