Armada Music Rewards Fans for 21 IDMA Nominations

February 13, 2015

AMSTERDAM, February 10th, 2015 - The IDMA nominations are in, and this year Armada Music has been nominated for 21 awards in categories across the board. As we look back on over a decade of nominations and awards, we would like to take a moment this year to do things a little differently than in years past. This year we’d like to reward the people who have supported us every step of the way. In recognition of our fans, who have played such an integral role over the years, we’re asking them to submit their favorite happy stories about Armada (with or without pictures) here

Each month, three stories will be shared on the Armada Wall of Fame, with the top 3 ‘Fans of the Month’ being chosen to be featured prominently on our extensive social media channels. Armada Music headquarters are going through a renovation and, in addition to receiving tickets to an Armada Night of choice, the top picks will even be given a spot on an actual wall in our new offices

This year, we are very proud to announce Armada Music has received no less than 21 nominations in 14 different categories for the annual International Dance Music Awards. As a previous five-time winner, the record label has once again been nominated for the ‘Best Global Record Label’ award.
