The International Dance Music Awards (IDMA 2019) returns for 33rd annual program

The International Dance Music Awards (IDMA 2019), an electronic music institution spanning 33 years, today announces a refreshed approach to its program for 2019 and beyond.  

For the first time since its inception, the IDMAs will undergo a complete update to its governing body, categories, and voting processes. Electronic Music will now have its very own advisory board that will help to define what the IDMA’s become and bring a new credibility to the awards like never before. The IDMA Advisory Board is comprised of major players within the electronic music community including notable artists, managers, agents, publicists and promoters, among others. 

Part of this year’s awards are powered by Viberate – the world’s biggest crowdsourced platform for listing and mapping the live music industry. Using their metrics based platform, the Viberate team was able to populate the IDMA “artist categories” and present a set of nominees based on true artist popularity and free from industry favoritism and politics. Nominees for the remaining IDMA categories will be selected by The IDMA Advisory Board, with the winners of all categories being determined by a public vote. Visit for more information.       

The IDMAs have always been at the forefront of representing different styles of electronic music while also offering a more inclusive look into the global scene. This year’s awards categories are the most comprehensive to date, modified further to celebrate electronic music’s ever changing palate and community. “Best Artist” categories have grown extensively, now featuring electronic music artists representing the pop electronic, techno, house, bass, trance, drum n’ bass, downtempo and hardstyle genres. Each “Best Artist” category is represented by a set of “Best Male” and “Best Female” nominees to offer an even wider view of the genre.
