Campus DJ is a college-specific music competition held bi-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 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. The events reward winning college DJs with cash prizes, gear, and exposure. The tour is also a sister-event to Campus MovieFest and previously also the College Battle of the Bands tours.[5][6]
