We’re so excited that you’re interested in a DJ slot for Furnal Equinox. Make sure you read everything here carefully so that you put your best paw forward when you submit your application!
How are DJ’s selected?
Our three-judge panel ranks all applications with the same rubric to ensure consistency. The evaluation is based on three main criteria:
• Song Selection
• Overall Energy
In short, we want you to be unique! Any sets that contain plagiarized material may be disqualified. Each applicant is only allowed one submission, and each set should be a minimum of forty-five (45) minutes.
What if I can spin more than one genre?
Great! You can list any and all genres you feel comfortable spinning on the form, but you will be evaluated on whichever genre you list first. As for multi-genre sets, try to keep the flow consistent and maintain a solid energy level.
I can only DJ certain nights. Is that a problem?
Nope! On the form, you should indicate any scheduling conflicts you might have. The more nights you are available, the better your chances of being selected!
What if I want to DJ back-to-back, or as part of a group?
That’s great! Make sure you list all of your fellow group members on the form when you fill it out.
When do I find out if I am selected?
Every applicant will receive an email response regardless of their decision. Decisions will be sent out to the email listed on the form, and the decision date will be announced via our official social media channels.
Can I appeal my decision?
Any applicant that is not offered a spot at FE is encouraged to ask for feedback from our judging panel, however every decision is final.
Any disrespectful, rude, or unacceptable behavior towards FE’s Dance Team before, during, or after the selection process will not be tolerated — this can result in application rejection or revocation of your time slot. Repeated or egregious offenses will be brought to the Nightingales team and may result in disciplinary action, up to and including a ban from future Anthro Events of Ontario.
