While dance music offers an intoxicating backdrop, the genre is steadily moving to the forefront. The first-ever Electronic Music Awards will take place on April 14 at the SLS Hotel in Los Angeles and air Saturday, April 23, on Fox, inviting in newbie fans and those who loved club songs wayyy before Justin Bieber started showing up on the Billboard dance charts.
“Where Are U Now” collaborators Skrillex and Diplo are among the hitmakers who received nominations in the awards show’s seven categories, which include single of the year, album of the year, radio show of the year, festival of the year, DJ of the year, best new artist and best club of the year.
Calvin Harris and Galantis grab two nominations for single and album of the year. Welcome newcomers Kygo and DJ Snake, meanwhile, face off with the vets for single of the year while also impressively being up for best new artist.
