Are you looking to flex your creative muscles? Want to showcase your skills on a nationwide scale? Well we might have the opportunity just for you!

Desperados have teamed up with UKF to launch City Hack! They’re looking for up-and-coming UK talent (DJs, promoters, artists and designers) to show off their skills and collaborate with other creators to takeover London, Bristol and Manchester this summer.

Throughout summer, assembled teams will collaborate together to show what their chosen city means to them in the most impressive way possible. Teams will also work together to promote Desperados’ excellent new ‘Desperados Red’ beer where they’ll be required to produce a red-themed party.

To help the teams honed their skills along the way, the City Hack mentors will be on hand to help; Foreign Beggars’ Pav, music promoter and Rinse FM DJ Carly Wilford, graphic designer Dave Bailey and large-scale visual artist Stuart Warren-Hill. The assembled teams will also have access to large-scale budgets and industry experts.

The competition will come to ahead on late on in the summer when the teams gather at Building 6 at The O2 for a one final “party-off”. The winners will then be given a full 12-month mentorship with UKF’s specialised mentors.
