More details

After weeks of battling it out the final two DJs have been picked to compete for a $500 grand prize and ultimately become the resident DJ at Uptown Tavern for the summer.

DJ Heabnasty says she is honored to be a female DJ finalist in this exciting musical competition.

“I'm an open-format DJ which means I like to play a wide variety of genres in one set,” she said. “I've been a DJ for seven years and it's a hobby that has turned into a lucrative second career. My favorite part about being a DJ is connecting with the crowd based on the music I play and essentially setting the vibe of the party! It means the world to me when people come up to the DJ booth and ask me the name of a track. I think spreading music is essentially spreading the love!”

DJ AC (Alura Chanel) was excited about the announcement of being in the finals this past Friday and is gearing up for a busy week ahead.

“Had a great night tonight! Won the semi-finals @Uptown tonight... Bringing it hard next week for Pride!” DJ AC posted on Facebook.

Each DJ will spin for an hour to see who gets the most votes.  

So get to Uptown Tavern to vote for your favorite DJ and congratulate the winner when they take home the prize. 

There will be hot gogos,  wonderful cocktails and of course great music. 

This is also the time Uptown Tavern will celebrate San Diego Pride with a kickoff party. 

The winning DJ will receive $500 and a residency at Uptown for the summer.

Uptown Tavern's Next Top DJ finale will be on Thursday, July 13 starting at 9 pm.
