Dave Clarke, co-Riverside Festival director, said: "At Riverside Festival, it is extremely important for us to book international DJs – however, supporting local talent is equally important, as we want Scotland’s vibrant scene to grow and flourish.

"Whether you DJ in a bar or club, play after-hours, keep the vibe flowing at late-night flat parties, provide the best warm-up in town, or even mix tracks in your bedroom but haven’t yet played in public, this competition could be your big break,”

Submissions are open from now until Thursday, September 28 at 4pm, after which a top 10 shortlist, compiled by the Riverside Festival Team, will be put to a public vote.

The top six entries will then perform live at The Locale Open Decks Night hosted by All U Need on Thursday, October 12th, with winners then announced on Friday, October 20.

All submitted mixes must be 20 minutes long, and entrants can find further information on the application form and Riverside Festival’s Instagram page.
