We’re not over the Grammys yet and Dance Music fans have another award show to look forward to now. The Electronic Music Awards & Foundation is slated to happen in April, and will feature 7 categories of awards all for Dance Music related artists. The Foundation is dedicated to help the next generation of talented DJs, artists, and producers ready to break the mould in electronic music.
Surprisingly, Jack Ü is absent from the list of nominees, especially after raking in awards at the 58th Grammys, although Skrillex and Diplo are both nominated separately under DJ of the Year.
The EMAF’s will feature red carpet coverage, award presentations, interviews, and live performances. They will air on April 23 at 9 p.m. PST and we’re super excited. Check out the full list of nominees below.
