Groove Cruise has been hosting an annual DJ contest for nearly 20 years, helping launch the careers of many up-and-coming artists.
To celebrate this milestone, Whet Foundation and FEMME HOUSE have partnered for the landmark Groove Cruise Miami 2024 to find passionate DJs ready to showcase their talent.
The winner will perform the opening slot of the FEMME HOUSE stage on the biggest Groove Cruise ship to date for the 20th anniversary.
The massive liner will sail from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas from Wednesday, January 24 until Sunday, January 28, 2024.
They will also win ocean-view stateroom accommodations for two, up to $600 in travel expenses, an episode on Femme House radio show and Groove Cruise radio, and an artist promotional package with EDM.com including an email newsletter and Instagram takeover.
FEMME HOUSE was launched in 2019 to create opportunities for marginalized communities in the music industry by providing education and scholarships, cultivating community, furthering visual representation, and amplifying the voices of women, gender-expansive, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ individuals.
Speaking on the partnership, Co-Founders of FEMME HOUSE, LP Giobbi and HERMIXALOT, said, “FEMME HOUSE impact happens at the magical intersection of community support, shared resources, and the abundant opportunity that results from combining the two.”
They continued, “We’re honored to have partners like Groove Cruise that share our commitment to education, visual representation, and ultimately, equity in music.”
To enter, DJs must submit a 30-minute audio/video mix and a short bio by Sunday, September 24, 2023. Contestants must use the submission form and be 21+.
