Posted at February 11th, 2016 | by Karan Acharya | in Nightlife

The Dutch Trance legend, Armin van Buuren, has probably achieved all there is to be won in the music industry at some point of time in his career and has probably the most enormous fan base around the world, but that has at no point of time stopped him from working harder and giving the best he can for his fans. And the year 2016 is no exception for him, after having received 14 nominations in 12 different categories at this year’s International Dance Music Awards (IDMA).

Since its inception in 1985, the Winter Music Conference (WMC) has attracted music enthusiasts, artists, DJs and industry delegates from all around the world and now stands as the dance music industry gathering in the world. The statistics of the festival are unbelievable which includes over two million votes on their website from people over 209 countries and territories ,  Over 1,900 artists and DJs perfomed in 350+ events spanning over 110 venues during the last edition of the event. So during the month of May , the Beach of Miami truly comes to life with events, parties, seminars and workshops to keep people engaged . Year after year the WMC along with the IDMA works towards achieving their goal of drawing the spotlight on emerging talent and encouraging the ever so many talented musicians around the world by providing a platform to showcase their skills and even be felicitated for the dame should they truly be the best in what they do.

The 31st edition of the IDMA has over 57 awards to be won and what makes it all the more special is that there are equal chances of industry legends or even fresh talent to win these awards. But one man who has some really good chances of walking away with a lot is Armin van Buuren and his record label Armada Music . Together they have amassed 29 nominations in all in 20 different categories.

Armada Record Label , which has already won the “Best Global Music Label” title from 2009 to 2013 , now stands as one of eight labels battling for the award this year too. Other nominations include “Best Music Label Promoter or Exec In-House” , which Armada CEO and co-owner, Maykel Piron has been nominated for and this is one title that he too won thrice from 2010 to 2012. Some of Armin’s nominations include  “Best Trance Track,” which his songs “Embrace,” “Another You” and “Stardust”  have all been nominated for and his collection, A State of Trance 2015, is up for “Best Compilation or Full Length DJ Mix.” ,  “Best Global DJ” and “Best European DJ,” “Best Artist (Solo)” and “Best Trance DJ.”
