Even the most famous DJs in the world — and many of them have graced the Mambo booth — will tell you that nothing compares to watching the sun sink below the horizon at Café Mambo. One of the most iconic venues in Ibiza, we’re proud to soundtrack the Balearic sunset every single night, bringing some of the most talented selectors on the planet along for the ride.
And now, with the launch of our annual DJ competition in collaboration with Absolut, you too could get behind in the decks of the hallowed Mambo booth, because we’re offering one budding spinner the chance to play the coveted sunset spot at Café Mambo, this September! We’ll fly the lucky winner and a friend to Ibiza for up to three nights for a solid dose of white isle action and superstar treatment!
To enter, upload a 30-minute, sunset-inspired, chilled-out mix to Mixcloud; use the tag #CaféMamboAbsolutDJCompetition2022 and title the mix Café Mambo x Absolut DJ Competition. You’ll also need to include the competition cover art, which can be found here.
You’ll then be in with a chance of playing that life-defining Mambo sunset set, plus return flights to Ibiza, up to three nights’ accommodation, a masterclass with one of Mambo’s much loved resident DJs and much, much more. In addition, the winner will have their 30-minute slot livestreamed, meaning potential global reach for your tunes!
The judging panel is made up of our very own Mambo resident squad, including Jason Bye, Andy Baxter, Danny O and Sara de Araújo, who are all well versed in what it takes to curate the perfect selection of sundowner anthems, so you know you’re in good hands. But bear in mind that they’ll be looking for originality, number of plays, track selection and personal promo across social platforms. Just make sure your mix gets over 50 plays to be eligible for consideration.
Full T&Cs and prize information can be found here.
We can’t wait to hear the hazy set of tunes you guys have got up your sleeves. Good luck!
