A 2007 alumna from East Carolina University with a double major in PR and Broadcast Performance, DJ KStones has been described as one of the hottest female DJ's in the nation according to the Carolina Promoter. Many know of DJ KStones and even if you don’t recognize the name, you've likely still danced to her tunes at many venues in North Carolina. With a long list of accolades including serving as the general manager and Hip Hop Director of WZMB 91.3 FM; the recipient of the 2011 Carolina Music Awards DJ of the Year, and the 2011 Raleigh Downtowner Favorite; DJ KStones has been rocking the hottest parties & planning some of the triad’s most elite events including: Soundfest, M.A.D, and Pretty in Pink. In addition, she’s been the driving force behind bringing major artists to the Triangle such as the Nappy Roots.
In 2011 DJ KStones dropped her highly anticipated Mixtape series entitled: 'THE BLACK DRESS' — which showcased her eclectic music taste and talent. The CEO of N The Mix Events, a well rounded event company that specializes in private parties, fundraisers, corporate events, weddings and more with distinct class and new age appeal, DJ KStones breathes personality into every event, whether it is a business conference, a high energy club setting, or anything in between.
In what has been considered one of the most successful events in the Triad and now in its second year of production, DJ KStones presents: Soundfest 2012 -- NC's FIRST DJ Showcase by the DJ's for the DJ's.
The event will be held on Sunday, April 29, 2012 at 4:00 PM at Longbranch. Located just 1/2 mile inside the Raleigh Beltline (I-440) at the Wake Forest Rd. exit, Longbranch is a multi-club entertainment venue in Raleigh NC and has showcased some of the biggest names in the US.
Soundfest started as a vision by Kristen “DJ KStones” Stoneman to put together an event showcasing DJ's. Stoneman states: “In an industry where the "DJ" is such an important part of the nightlife, Soundfest was formed to show homage to our talented NC DJ's in hopes to create unity between genres and the community, and gain respect of our peers.”
Last year in its inaugural event, 15 DJs participated and drew in a crowd of over 300. This years show will feature 26 local DJ's from the Carolina's and is sure to bring in a huge crowd.
Sponsors for the event include: Red Bull, Vitamin Water, Lazyday, DRL Toons, N The Mix Inc., Fourever Proud Apparel and Troy Jacques Jermaine.
