Creating an award show focused on all the creative components that contribute to the success of dance music (music, art, production and lighting) has been a dream of mine for years. Partnering with dick clark productions was an easy decision given their experience producing the Golden Globes and the American Music Awards. I’m confident that our partnership will create an event that is focused on recognizing creativity without politics, and that it will celebrate all the elements that go into making dance music such a beautiful experience for the fans.”

It’s truly international, dick clark productions is the largest producer of music awards shows in the industry and Insomniac has been at the forefront of the EDM movement since they started in 1993. Creating an EDM awards show with Insomniac is the perfect collaboration.
