Do you know an undiscovered DJ who’s got the skills to wow the #GCFam aboard the sold-out Miami sailing of Groove Cruise 2020 – or are you a DJ looking for their big break? The Groove Cruise annual DJ contest is underway. The creator of the winning mix will earn a spot spinning on the 16th annual sailing from Miami to Costa Maya January 9-13th.

Not only does the winner earn a dream gig aboard Groove Cruise alongside Above & Beyond, KSHMR, Loco Dice, Markus Schulz, Nora en Pure, Roger Sanchez, Solarstone, Qrion, Cocodrills and 40 other artists, but they and a guest will get a free stateroom on the cruise aboard the Celebrity Infinity as well as airfare for two (a $3,500+ value). The winning mix will also be featured on Groove Cruise Radio to an audience of over 100,000 subscribers. The second place winner also gets a sweet deal in the form of two ADAM Audio A8X Studio Monitors valued at $2,000.
