It’s that time again — the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) returns for its 33rd annual event and voting is open in a variety of categories.


IDMA is busy gathering its nominees now, which will be determined in collaboration with IDMA Advisory Board and Viberate, the “world’s biggest crowdsourced platform for listing and mapping the live music industry.”

In addition, IDMA just revealed the full list of categories, including the categories in which winners will be determined by the public. Once nominees are announced, fans will be able to cast votes based on best albums, songs, remixes, and more. Plus, best label, club, music festival, podcast, radio station, etc.

“Best Artist” categories have grown extensively for this year — 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, intended to offer a wider view of each genre.

The IDMA is part of Winter Music Conference, which takes place March 25 – 28, 2019 in the Faena District, Miami Beach, Florida. For more information visit: wintermusicconference.com
