TORONTO TO HOST THE WORLD’S LARGEST DJ COMPETITION

(Toronto, ON) October 23, 2013 – What started as an underground experiment back in 2007 has quickly grown into the world’s largest DJ competition and, for the first time, the Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals will hit Toronto this November.

￼￼￼￼ THE HISTORY OF RED BULL THRE3STYLE
Red Bull Thre3Style began as an underground experiment six years ago in Western Canada. In 2010 the event went global for the first time, effectively changing the face of modern DJ battles by pitting ten countries’ top DJs against each other. Since then, in three short years, Red Bull Thre3Style has grown to what is now the largest DJ competition on earth. This year’s competition features the top local DJs from 21 countries around the world, including Canada, Brazil, Croatia and Taiwan.

Holi Festival Of Colours
What it´s all about..
The HOLI Festival takes place at the fullmoon day of the Phaluga month and belongs to the most famous celebrations in the northern parts of India. At this Hindu-Festival people celebrate the victory of the good over the bad and the beginning of the spring.
The special feature is that the people paint themselves with various colours and are throwing the colourful powder in the air to express the freedom and to color their everyday life. The most important thing is, that at this day all castes of the indian caste-system are banned and put out of force. That means that at these celebration days all people are equal!
At this point the idea of bringing that special festival to the whole world arises. As unfortunately there is a huge level of inequality in the world, people deserve a celebration where the everyday life steps back for a peaceful and harmonic being together. A pleasant and cheerful festival, which creates a sustainable feeling in the minds of the visitors and those who will read and hear about it. This Event has the power to directly promote and foster the precious goods of equality and tolerance and bring people together.
