After an intense judging period by the Miller SoundClash judges - industry insiders from Miller, DJ Mag and Marquee Las Vegas; the 10 finalists were judged on their DJ mix submissions, number of plays, likes and positive comments on Mixcloud, and of course their all-important live sets at the Grand Finale.
