DJ AWARDS 2011

I wrote about the dj awards of last year just a few blogs ago. The 2011 DJ awards just past. I decided to write about this exciting event. I’m glad to see electronic musicians have their own award show. This is just a reminder how big and prosperous the scene became! Paris Hilton actually presents an award to Afro Jack if you can believe that! lol
Catch this amazing video as Lucky Life TV (www.luckylife.co.uk) goes behind the scenes at the 14th Edition of the DJ AWARDS in Ibiza, held at Ocean Drive and Pacha, Ibiza.

The DJ Awards was created to recognise and celebrate the talents of the greatest DJ’s. The fundamental philosophy of the DJ Awards 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 the DJ Awards focuses on the celebration of the electronic dance music scene, and seeks to let the world know that the art of DJ’ing is a respected craft with world-wide impact. This annual event is the only international DJ awards ceremony to be held in Ibiza which becomes the dance music capital of the world, during the summer months. It is also one of the longest running award ceremonies in the world, whilst enviably still retaining the same ethos as it did when it first started; to honour and celebrate DJs and individuals who have influenced dance music across the globe.
