Hardwell won big at this year’s DJ Awards, held annually in Ibiza.
For the 20th year of the awards ceremonies, dozens of DJs were nominated in a variety of categories including Bass, Big Room House, Domntempo & Eclectic, Breakthrough, Newcomer, and more. Some of the nominees in these categories didn’t make very much sense, like Flume, Galantis, Kygo, and Marshmello being nominated in the Big Room House category… seriously?
But in the end, Hardwell took home the award in that category, beating out other more rational opponents like Blasterjaxx, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and David Guetta. This is his second year in a row winning this award.
Hardwell also took home the award for Best International DJ, beating out other nominees including Deadmau5, Eric Prydz, Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren, Carl Cox, and Sven Vath.
Congratulations, Hardwell! See the full list of winners below.
