The World’s biggest, longest running, most legendary DJ Battle: The Technics DMC World DJ Finals is coming to San Francisco for the first time ever! The only other time it was held in the USA was in New York City in 1999 for two sold out nights at the Hammerstein Ballroom! Since 2000 it took place at home in London. Having been forced to take place online for the past 3 years, DMC World Finals are now live again and will take place in a different country each year!
