Tiësto and SiriusXM are collaborating on an upcoming contest that would give a select number of college students the opportunity to host their own one-hour radio show on the Dutch DJ's Club Life Radio channel, with a final winner handed a monthly slot for as long as six months.

Tiesto Launches Sirius XM Radio Channel

For each of the fifteen stops on Tiësto's Club Life College Invasion Tour -- which launches October 2 at Syracuse University -- a new winner will receive concert tickets and create an hour-long mix to be played over the satellite radio channel, with Tiësto choosing the best of the fifteen at the end of the tour.

"We have always valued and supported new music and artists," said Scott Greenstein, president/chief content officer at SiriusXM, in a statement. "And Tiësto has long been on the cutting edge of the dance music culture, so we are looking forward to seeing who Tiësto chooses to host a special monthly show on his SiriusXM channel."

Tiësto's radio channel was announced March 23, the same day he was set to headline the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, and functions as a 24/7 showcase of the DJ's tracks as well as those by other EDM artists, and curated by Tiësto. He also topped Forbes' recent list of the 10 highest-paid DJ's in the world, raking in $22 million over the past year, with a reported nightly average of $250,000. He joined the likes of Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia and Steve Aoki on the list.

"My College Invasion Tour is all about giving students around the US an unforgettable experience," he said in a statement. "This program I've built with SiriusXM is an extension of that experience and I hope it will encourage the creative side of my fans too."
