Do you think your DJ skills are top-notch? Would you like the chance to spin at an alpine retreat in Switzerland?
W Verbier, opening Dec. 1, will be W Hotels Worldwide’s first alpine and ski retreat, and the hotel is launching a contest to find a resident DJ. From now through Sept. 30, participant can submit a link to an original track or video, along with their CV, to wverbier.com/dj-search. Six people will be chosen to spin for three nights at W London Leicester Square in November before a panel of judges, including W Hotels’ global music director, Michaelangelo L’Acqua, and W Hotels & burn 2012 DJ lab artists Aline Magnier and Klaus Rosa De Macedo of London Beats. A final battle will take place on Nov. 9 between the top three finalists at Wyld, W London’s bar.
“We are looking for a DJ who shares the W brand’s passion for music and will be committed to bringing what’s new and next in the music scene to the W Verbier audience of global trendsetters and local tastemakers,” says Michaelangelo L’Acqua.
The contest winner will be flown to Switzerland the week after the final battle to join the W Verbier team. The hotel will feature 123 guestrooms in four chalets, located next to the main gondola and ski slopes. For more on W Verbier, visit wverbier.com.
