Campus DJ is a college-specific music competition held annually in the United States. Campus DJ invites students currently enrolled in a college or university to participate in its events.[1][2]

Format & Rules[edit]

The Campus DJ format is similar to the annual NCAA Basketball Tournament. Top college DJs and music producers compete at events in local college markets,[3][4] before advancing onto the National Semi-Finals, and then the National Finale, which is held annually at the end of the school year. The events reward winning college DJs with cash prizes, gear, and exposure. The tour is also a sister-event to Campus MovieFest and the College Battle of the Bands tours.[5][6]
