The competition is open to anyone from the ages of 6-year-olds to 60+ veterans playing ANY style of music.

Slots on offer are Friday and Saturday 8.00pm – 9.30ish, for a duration of 30 mins (max).

All you have to do to enter the competition is leave a comment on the Instagram post below with the “one track you just have to play at Rum Shack”.

Equipment supplied will include 2x Pioneer CDJ2000 Nexus, or alternatively, you could or bring your own DJ controller. The winners will have to bring their own headphones and use USB or CDs only. No turntables. No tutorials.

The deadline is Wed 19 June 10.00am. The ten DJ’s will then be selected at random and receive a direct message informing of the winning.

Rum Shack says that you need to arrive 30mins before your set, as latecomers will lose their spot and that there will be a waiting list.

Please note: You must already have a ticket for Glastonbury Festival in order to enter this competition. No backstage access permitted.

If you get selected, “to minimise piss-takers”, you will be required to pay a £10 deposit in advance to guarantee your set. You get this back if you turn up. If you don’t turn up, Rum Shack will donate it to Refugee Community Kitchen.

Fast becoming Glastonbury Festival’s most infamous all-night party, The Rum Shack is an 800-capacity barn structure packed with the best live music, DJ’s and surprise guests. A feast of late-night revelry that mashes up sound system culture, hip hop, funk, blues and poetry – fuelled by the finest rum. You won’t forget it. It’s your new home. You can’t miss it. The sign is massive.

The Common was one of the very first area’s to announce its line-up for Glastonbury 2019, earlier this year.

Glastonbury 2019 runs between June 26 and 30 at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset.
