In 2016, Ahhyeah started a weekly event to give local DJs an outlet for creativity. Every Wednesday they would gather in Jersey City and 9 DJs would battle it out for the chance to return at the end of the month. Weekday Warriors was born! Competition increased greatly as did the complexity of the DJ sets. Our DJs take the audience on a journey through music , crossing genres and decades.
Starting Feb 05th DJs from all over the East Coast can enter the competition with a submission of a 2- 5 minute performance video. In Late March the participants of the Qualifiers will be announced and from April through July events will be taking placein NYC , NJ , & Philidelphia. The winners of these events(top 2 from each competition), will then make their way to NJ for and to participate in this year’s Finals.
