What better way to do science than with epic music? We're calling on all DJs to come and bring the dance floor to life, with dances held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.

Applications have closed for AWU 2024- thanks to all who applied!

Things to remember when applying:

  • DJs will have the opportunity to earn points through the AWU Rewards program, which can be saved or spent as you please on things like future convention registration, merchandise, and food. If earning perks interests you, be sure to enroll in the program in MyAWU. 140 points will be issued to each DJ upon successful completion of a set.
  • DJs also will receive a check for $100.00 USD upon successful completion of a set.
  • Successful completion of a set includes the following criteria:
    • The set adhered to AWU's General 24/7 “PG” convention rating. (ie. excessive colorful language, overtly sexual content, etc.)
    • The DJ showed professional conduct throughout the set. This doesn't mean you're not allowed to have fun- Just be kind to your fellow DJs, attendees, and the convention A/V crew!
    • The DJ did not touch their master gain knob during their set.
    • The DJ set occupied the entirety of the 60 minute slot.
  • A DJ will only receive these perks and rewards once for the entire weekend. A maximum of two DJs can participate in one set, and must both actively participate throughout the entire set.
  • As part of the application, you will be required to submit a brief (20-60 minute) demo. This demo can be submitted via any channel as long as we can listen to it (Mixcloud, Soundcloud, YouTube, mp3 in a Google Drive, etc.)
  • The chances of your application being accepted will be dependent on criteria including, but not limited to:
    • Technical ability demonstrated in the demo. Are the transitions clean? Gains consistent? Beats matched?
    • Is the music you're playing danceable? Will the crowd know what to do? Does your music selection 'flow' well?
    • If having DJ'd in the past, were you a good sport to other DJs?
    • How many days are you available to DJ?
  • Content produced using Generative AI will not be tolerated during the live set or application. This includes but is not limited to audio, stage visuals, DJ profile photos, etc.
