Tips for applying
The best advice we can give in regards to getting a role is timing your application and filling it out properly. Please use the correct e-mail provided (or the contact form) and not the comments section, via Facebook, etc. Please check the relevant post to the show you wish to apply for in regards to application form since it can vary from time to time.
While experience is not required for certain roles, you will really need to wow us with interest, personality and unique set ideas and playlists. For those extremely experienced, especially in EDM roles, please keep in mind that Neko Nation is a unique event and sets that struggle to be relevant the anime, gaming, pop culture, Japanese music, will not generally not be considered.
While some of the application questions might be a bit odd and bizarre, keep in mind that you are not being judged in your tastes or your favourite things, it’s to gauge more of an idea of a personality. Usually more interesting and unique ideas are what sell us, especially if you’ve got ideas to partner up with somebody else.
