It’s difficult to believe that the DJ Awards were almost a whole year ago and the 2015 awards are today! We’ve heard that year’s voting campaign has had an incredible response, exceeding votes from the previous 17 years. Music lovers have showed their support for all the 2015 Nominees in the 10 DJ categories, including Deep House, Electronica, Tech House, Techno, Trance, Electro/Progressive House, Bass, Newcomer, Breakthrough and International DJ.
The list of nominees cross over a broad spectrum of DJs, from those unshakable names riding high, to new cutting edge contenders. The DJ Awards Ceremony returns to Pacha Ibiza on Tuesday 29th September where the winners will be announced at one of Ibiza’s most iconic clubs.
Created back in 1998, this non profit organisation continues to remain the original DJ poll dedicated to the electronic music culture. Past winners who have graced the stage include Frankie Knuckles, Danny Tenaglia, Roger Sanchez, Pete Tong and more recently Hardwell, Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, David Guetta, Carl Cox, Luciano, Jamie Jones, Richie Hawtin, Seth Troxler, Solomun, Mano Le Tough, Patrick Topping, DJ Harvey, Faithless Sound System, Lenny Kravitz and Madness, amongst many others.
On the night 12 Special Industry Awards that have been chosen by a panel of industry experts, including the likes of International Festival, Dance Nation Of The Year, Outstanding Contribution, Ibiza DJ and Track Of The Season will also be presented during the ceremony.
The DJ Awards is a celebration that takes place at the end of the Ibiza season to unite DJs and the music industry from all over world. This year the ceremony at Pacha will be followed by an exclusive DJ Awards Official Party, featuring some very special guests to be announced soon.
This year’s theme is Meet on the Beat, signifying how music unites everyone, above and beyond the highs and the lows, we will still all meet on the beat!
