EDM to be celebrated in its own awards show, The Electronic Music Awards
Electronic dance music has been recognized only as a category at massive award shows like the Grammys and the Billboard Music Awards, ceremonies that recognize a wide variety of music, ranging from country to pop.
Yet on Thursday, September 21st, dance music will get its own awards show devoted to the recognizance of the DJs who led the year in song. The inaugural Electronic Music Awards will be broadcast globally. Taking place in a warehouse in downtown Los Angeles, “Album of the Year,” “Single of the Year,” “Record of the Year,” and “Producer of the Year” are just some of the categories that will be awarded that evening.
Up for nominations are The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Flume, Claude VonStroke, REZZ, and many more. The full list of categories and nominees appears below.
