Movida Corona DJ Competition with Ministry of Sound

After 12 successful years, Corona Extra has teamed up with Ministry of Sound to take the UK leg of the legendary Movida Corona International DJ Contest to the next level.

Movida Corona International DJ Contest is a competition designed to unearth the finest, undiscovered DJ talent the UK has to offer via 6 regional heats and a British grand finale at Ministry of Sound in London on 16th October (see list of dates below).
