In the US, April 25 sees Philadelphia’s Khyber Club open at 7.30 for a night of free entertainment, sponsored by iPodLounge ( with a selection of great prizes.

What they are saying:

"Playlist is a newly democratic way to decide what a dancefloor will be listening to - and along the way is turning amateur DJs into local club heroes." The Times.

"Put your taste to the test with 15 minutes of music on an iPod, see DJ hopefuls mashing-up before a jury of their peers." The Sunday Telegraph.

"Along with cars and stereo systems, entire nights are being dedicated to the iPod. It's not going away." The Register.

How it works:

We invite DJs, judges and dancers.

We invite music lovers to show up with their best 15-minute set of tunes on their iPod (or other digital music player) to play their songs through the club PA for our audience of music fans and critical judges. DJs are welcome to play their own songs and mixes. Read playlists from previous nights at

The best London DJ wins a £50 top prize, and Londons’ judges get a free drink on us. The April 23 party is sponsored by KarmaDownload, a UK-based music download service specializing in dance and indie that sells tracks in the cross-platform friendly MP3 format.

Playlist Philly and iPodLounge are offering the best three DJs on April 25 a chance to win: Etymotic headphones, an iPod shuffle or $50-worth of iTunes vouchers.

Get involved:

We simply don’t believe it is only superstar DJs that can play the best tunes - everyone has ears. We don’t believe music is something that’s just passively consumed. We believe music makes valuable connections between humans, that people need to connect by sharing the sounds they love in public.

Digital DJing is a skill - you need to know your music, you need to be able to read a crowd, to give them something they want. It’s not easy - but at Playlist everyone has a chance to shine.

Playlist is the digital world’s democratic dancefloor, and we’d like to invite you to take part: be a judge, a dancer or a DJ, and share the experience with people who think a little like you do.

Playlist is free. The audience is the entertainment and we won’t put a tax on fun. We want Playlist people to keep their money and spend it on the one thing that holds it all together - the musicians. Buy your music and share those sounds through the PA at a Playlist Club near you.

London’s free party runs 9pm-2am at Progress Bar, 162 Tufnell Park Road, London, N7 0EE.
