Aux Cord Wars Live unfolds like a musical game show reminiscent of an old-school DJ battle, with a twist -- audience members turn into competitors, controlling the music themselves. Hosted by renowned entertainers Jay Dukes and Trizzy and featuring ACW official DJs working side-by-side to keep the experience live, the show chooses participants to compete against each other for a chance to win cash prizes and other rewards on the spot while showcasing their taste in music to see who can move the crowd. By putting the power in the hands of the audience, Aux Cord Wars aim to create an electrifying atmosphere filled with creativity, competition and fun.
