To the Decks: Area DJs Can Win a Chance to Perform at Lights All Night

Tiesto, Girl Talk, Diplo and Neon Indian are just a few of the names taking to the tables at the annual two-night New Year's blowout better known as Lights All Night. But you knew that.

What you may not have known is that the Observer and DC9 are official sponsors of the December 30 and December 31 event. But we don't just want our own name to be associated with the huge event -- we want your name on the bill.

How does it get there? First, you need to be a DJ. Second, you need to follow these simple instructions.

You've got a little over three weeks, so get to spinning. By 11 a.m. CST on Friday, November 18, upload your DJ set or song to this contest site. You must be 18 years of age or older to enter.

After submissions are closed, the public will vote on the entries, and ultimately select a grand prize winner and finalists.

The grand prize-winning DJ will secure a set at Lights All Night at the Dallas Convention Center, as well as the after-party for our Artopia event December 3 at Dallas Contemporary. Three other finalists will get to perform at Artopia, as well.
