DMC World DJ Championships announces 2021 edition.

The DMC World DJ Championships sponsored by Technics, an annual DJ competition which began in 1985, has revealed dates and scheduling for the categories in this year's competition.

After successfully moving 2020's 35th edition of the event online amid the coronavirus pandemic, DMC Founder, Tony Prince, told the DJ Times that "rather than shrink into the COVID shadows", organisers had been working hard to create new events and categories for another online edition of the competition.

"With travel and continuing social restrictions in the way, we have gathered our sponsors to ensure that you can be faced with challenges to stretch your talents and originality and build your global reputation," Prince said. "The companies who have long serviced the World’s DJs with new technology are right by your side.

"The 2021 schedule will lead to new titles in many different formats with which we hope you can have creative fun, win prizes and titles and go on to conquer the world! Eventually this year we will arrive at the 2021 DMC World DJ Championship. The list of previous winners is long and magnificent, and so it will continue to be! We wish you safety and creativity on the totally online platform we have built for you. The very best of luck."

The programming will also feature DJ panels, product workshops from sponsors and DMC history segments, alongside a new watchalong where judges and champions comment live on the competition.
