Red Bull 45s - an event that takes a piece of record history and remixes in into an innovative evolution of the traditional DJ competition. The event pays tribute to yesteryear by tasking DJs with competing against each other using only the 7-inch 45 rpm records popular in the 1950s and 1960s.

The competition format places four DJs in four opposite corners of the venue, with the crowd in the middle. Each DJ spins for no more than four minutes on 45 rpm records, with each subsequent DJ attempting to match the last beat of the previous DJ - without the help of any beat-matching programs.

The goal of the event is to revive the once revered 45 rpm record while tasking DJs to use all their imagination and expertise to create a seamless and continuous flow of music. At the end of the event, one DJ will be declared the winner based on both his musical creativity and technical skill.

It's action that can't be missed.
