Want to DJ for UPRAWR?

Do you want to DJ for Uprawr?

Every week, our DJ’s bring the party, playing the biggest and best music in the alternative scene at our Birmingham Asylum venue.
Through Uprawr, our DJ’s have performed to crowds of 1000’s at some of the UK’s biggest alternative festivals such as Slam Dunk, Download, 2000 Trees and more! 

We want to expand our team and will be initially looking for 2 new DJ’s to join us.  We fully encourage applications from everyone - if you love your music, you could be perfect!


You do not already need to be a DJ - full training can be given! 


To get an idea of your tastes and whether they are right for us, initially we just want prospective DJ’s to send us the following “top 10” lists.  This should be presented as artist / title, no need for recorded mixes.


1 - Your favourite songs of the moment

2 - Your favourite songs of all time


Applicants should also tell us briefly why they want to be an Uprawr DJ, any experience you might have & what you think you can bring to the team.

Please send this, along with your lists, to jobs@totaluprawr.com


Applications will close on 25th Oct.
