The DJ AWARDS returns on Wednesday, 25th September at Pacha, Ibiza. Celebrating a colossal 16 years, this annual ceremony remains since its inception in 1998 the longest running and most faithful DJ poll.

The hotly awaited 2013 line-up of Categories & Nominees are now confirmed. There´s been alot of debating, heads are spinning from all the suggestions that our panel of electronic dance music finest, have been throwing at us, before arriving to these nominees.

The DJ Awards announces 9 categories, which the public get to vote their favorites to win the prestigious Kryptonite awards. Voting has now opened at djawards.wpengine.com and will close at the end of August. Plus 11 Special Industry Awards which are presented during the ceremony and decided by a selected panel.

We can’t say that everyone will agree with us, its subjectivity at its best. However if our list of nominees brings about some debate, then bring it on!
Created back in 1998, this non profit making organization continues to gain support from the EDM scene, with past winners gracing the stage at Pacha, including Armin Van Buuren, David Guetta, Carl Cox, Tiesto, Luciano, Seth Troxler, Solomun, SHM, Sven Vath, Faithless Sound System, Loco Dice, Lenny Kravitz, and Madness amongs many others.

The DJ Awards has become an end of season ritual in Ibiza, the awards unite DJs from all over the world who come to celebrate the music they love, with their contemporaries. And this year the DJ Awards after party will coincide with Guy Gerbers “Wisdom of the Glove” party featuring Audiofly, Lee Curtis (live) and special guests.

This year’s theme is Earth, together with Fire, Water and Air, believed to reflect the simplest essential parts and principles of which anything consists. It is a cultural universal manifestation of these 4 elements that help to make the DJ Awards one of the best International award ceremonies within the electronic music scene…..well it’s a lovely thought isn’t it!!
