After the success of the inaugural Midsumma National DJ Search in 2011, Midsumma again carried out the competition in 2012 (for Festival 2013) travelling the country to find the best local DJs to perform at Midsumma's Opening dance party, T Dance.
For the 2013 festival, the Midsumma National DJ Search travelled to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart, each in conjunction with the local GLBTIQ festival, with the exception of Sydney. A panel of local judges, including a representative from the host Festival, selected the winner from each state. The state winners then went into a battle of online voting to be crowned the National winner, and flown to Melbourne to perform at T Dance 2013.
- 2012 Winner: Lil Miss K from Adelaide
- 2013 Winner: DJ Emili Oh from Melbourne
