  4. How to Enter:

    Online Entry Process. To be eligible to enter the Contest, entrants must first visit and follow the instructions to enter as a participant in the Contest at the Participating Venue. The online entry process will be open at the beginning of the Promotion Period and will close at Participating Venue's Online Entry Closed date and time as listed at The online entry process will ask certain questions related to your identity, characteristics about you, and your favorite songs. You must answer all questions completely and honestly.

    Invitations Issued. After the close of the online entry process, Sponsor will review the eligible entries and submitted invitations to participate to those entrants that, in Sponsor's sole discretion meet the following criteria: originality, creativity, depth of music selection, showmanship, entertainment value, and social clout (each, an "Invitee"). Each Invitee may accept the invitation as instructed on the invitation or other materials provided by Sponsor. To participate, Invitee must accept the invitation as instructed by the deadline set forth on the invitation or other materials provided by Sponsor. Each Invitee who properly accepts the invitation is referred to as a "DJ" in these Official Rules.

    Play and Destroy. On the date of the Play and Destroy at the Participating Venue (the "Event"), each DJ must follow the directions provided by Sponsor and arrive at the Participating Venue to participate in the Event. At the Event, Sponsor and/or its representatives (the "Reps") will instruct DJs regarding the technical aspects and rules for participation in the Event. Generally, DJs will be divided into brackets and "battle" one another in rounds until a winner is decided (e.g., qualifying round, quarter final round, semi final round, and a final round). In each "battle", the two participating DJs will be provided a theme, and one DJ will play a clip of a song from that DJ's music library as a response to the theme. The second DJ will then respond by playing another song from his or her own music library. The first DJ may then respond, and this pattern will continue as instructed by Sponsor and/or the Reps. Repeats or songs are not allowed during the battle by either DJ. Each song played or group of songs played is an "Entry". After each "battle" is completed, the audience will choose one of the DJs as the winner as the Sponsor and/or the Reps instruct.

    The Sponsor and Reps will have the final and sole discretion in deeming either DJ as a winner of a particular "battle" and how the Event will proceed in grouping DJs together for "battles."

    Entries must be received within the deadlines set forth above to be valid and eligible.
