The DJ Awards were founded by renowned Ibiza organiser Jose Pascual and well know DJ, producer and record label owner, Lenny Krarup, DJ Awards is an independent non profit electronic music awards and has been the only one of its kind since 1998.
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.
