The DJ Awards were founded by renowned Ibiza organiser, Jose Pascual, and well know DJ, producer and record label owner, Lenny Krarup. The DJ Awards is an independent non-profit electronic music awards and has been the only one of its kind since 1998.
The DJ Awards is a celebration of the electronic music scene and aims to recognise and honour DJs and individuals who have influenced electronic dance music worldwide. Held annually in Ibiza at the end of the summer season, DJ Awards has retained the same ethos since its conception. The fundamental philosophy is not that of a competition, as we are dealing with an art form whose merits are purely subjective and therefore there is no best. Rather DJ Awards seeks to shine a light on key talents in the industry.
The 2017 DJ Awards was the 20th Anniversary Edition and it was held at Hi Ibiza. The event last night (26th September 2017) saw top DJs, influential professionals and media gather under one roof to celebrate the cream of the crop in the Dance Music industry. The 2017 DJ Awards had nine music categories that cover the expansive scope of electronic music and the categories included: Bass, Big Room House, Deep House, Downtempo & Eclectic, Electronic Live Performer, House, Tech House, Techno and Trance. Three non music categories included: Breakthrough, Newcomer and International DJ.
The 2017 DJ Awards also had an additional 12 Special Industry Awards that included the following categories: Cutting Edge, Dance Nation, Eco Award, Electronic Music Pioneer, Ibiza DJ, Radio & TV, Ibiza Music Event, Ibiza Night, International Festival, Producer, Record Label of the Year, and Track of the Season.
