For the first time, Tampa will be home to Red Bull’s Thre3style regional qualifiers, a DJ contest that attracts competitors from across the nation. Some of the best DJs in the southeast will be competing head-to-head this Thursday in a musical battle of skills at The Ritz Ybor.
In order to win, each of the six selected DJS will play a 15-minute set that incorporates different genres. A panel will select one DJ to advance to the national qualifiers, held in Phoenix, where the best of the US will be sent to represent in Tokyo, Japan. Red Bull’s Thre3style went global in 2010, bringing DJs from 10 different countries together to battle in a test of musical skill.
Doors open to Thre3style at 9 p.m at The Ritz Ybor. There is a free event, but all attendees must be 18 years or older.
