The show was supposed to be filmed April 14 and air as an hour-long special on Fox later this month.

The first-ever Electronic Music Awards show will no longer be taking place this month as planned.

A representative confirmed to Billboard that the fledgling awards show had been postponed in the following statement:

"As this is the first year of the awards, we have the luxury of flexibility, which we are taking advantage of to decide the optimal timetable to present the awards. With this opportunity, we felt that it would better to represent the electronic music calendar in the fall rather than the spring.”

Co-founded by Paul Oakenfold and Los Angeles-based production company TV4 Entertainment, the Electronic Music Awards & Foundation show was scheduled to be filmed on April 14 at the SLS Hotel in Los Angeles and aired as an hour-long special on April 23 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
