Saturday 19 June from 6:30pm to 11:59pm


Adult: $29.00

Making its grand return in 2021, DJ competition _Spin-Off _is being reignited for Mardi Gras Pride Weekender in search of Australia’s next generation of LGBTQI+ DJs. 

A community favourite throughout the noughties and ‘10s, Spin-Off provides a platform for bedroom producers and amateur DJs to get behind the decks in front of a party audience and battle it out on the ones and twos.  

This is a landmark event for 2021, being the first dance party held at The Metro since early 2020, with none other than multi-ARIA Award winner K.I.M (The Presets) closing out the event as special guest headliner.

Winners will have the chance to perform at a future Mardi Gras event with the competition judged by Australian DJ royalty, including Kate Monroe, Feisty, DJ Gemma, Seymour Butz and Charlie Villas. 

  • First prize: A set at a 2022 Mardi Gras event and 2x VIP tickets to Party

  • Second Prize: 2x tickets to Diamond Club

  • Third Prize: 2x tickets to Laneway
