Movida Corona catapults the best club or bedroom DJs in the UK to be in with a chance of living the ultimate dream and playing at the country final on October 20th at Oran Mor, Glasgow, before competing against DJs from 70 other countries taking part in the Movida Corona world final.
 
The road to fame starts with a series of heats at some of Scotland’s hottest clubs and venues.
 
Taking part in the competition gives everyone the chance to perform a snapshot of their best mixing techniques. Then the top DJ from each bar will go through to the final of the championship.
 
Angel Garcia Gomez, head of Corona Extra in the UK, said: “Movida Corona is one of the highlights of the calendar as everyone in the country can get involved – either by entering the competition or just coming along to the party.
 
“Movida is the Mexican word meaning risky or on the edge, which reflects the cutting-edge styles of these performers.”
 
John Gilligan, Sales Director at Wm Morton, added: "Last year we had top DJs battling for supremacy at heats all over Scotland and many will be back to try their luck again this time around.
 
"We are certain the heats will produce another talented winner to go forward to the world final later this year.  It provides a wonderful opportunity for aspiring DJs and highlights Corona Extra's credentials for having fun and enjoying the action or just chilling out and enjoying the vibe."
 
Eric Craig, Corona Extra Brand Manager at Wm Morton, said: “Given the explosion of the DJ culture in the nineties, there are relatively few opportunities now for the next big DJing stars to get a break.
 
“This is a tournament for passionate DJs, who believe that it is not just a matter of putting records on, but is a ‘bona fide’ art form requiring a credible platform. Movida Corona contest provides that platform.”

The road to fame starts with a series of heats at some of Northern Ireland’s hottest clubs and venues.
 
Movida Corona catapults the best club DJs in the UK to be in with a chance of living the ultimate dream and playing at the country final on September 22 at Yello @ Mynt, which promises to be the biggest party you’ve ever seen. Think plasma screens, laser shows, sky tracers and all the fun that Corona Extra brings to the party.
