Toronto Host World’s Largest DJ Competition

This should be interesting.  The event runs from November 4-9.  From the press release:

What started as an underground experiment back in 2007 has quickly grown into the world’s largest DJ competition and, for the first time, the Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals will hit Toronto this November. Inbound from the four corners of the globe – from Albania to Argentina, from Jamaica to Japan – the 21 top DJs on earth will take over the city of Toronto to compete for the title of Red Bull Thre3style World Champion.
 
Over a weeklong series of world-class music events, each DJ will engineer and perform a crowd pumping, 15-minute music set mixing at least three genres of music to a full house of concertgoers and judges, in order to showcases technical prowess and melt the dance floor. All will come down to the World Championship final competition on November 9, where the last five DJs standing will battle for ultimate sonic supremacy and the most coveted DJ title on earth.
