In 1998 the very first DJ Awards was conceived by Jose Pascual, a legendary figure noted for organising ground breaking events held in Ibiza, and Lenny Krarup, a well known DJ/Producer & Record Label Owner.
The DJ Awards were created to recognise and celebrate the talents of the greatest DJ’s. The fundamental philosophy of the DJ Awards is not that of a competition, as we are dealing with an art form whose merits are purely subjective and therefore there is no best. Rather the DJ Awards focuses on the celebration of the electronic dance music scene, and seeks to let the world know that the art of DJ’ing is a respected craft with world-wide impact. This annual event is the only international DJ awards ceremony to be held in Ibiza which becomes the dance music capital of the world, during the summer months. It is also one of the longest running award ceremonies in the world, whilst enviably still retaining the same ethos as it did when it first started; to honour and celebrate DJs and individuals who have influenced electronic dance music across the globe
