IDMA nominees: Armin van Buuren
Throughout the years, Armin’s collection of prestigious awards and much-wanted titles has grown to legendary size. And for good reason! The Dutch DJ still sets forth the fire of EDM, being the flag bearer of trance music. No wonder he’s nominated for another 9 International Dance Music Awards this year!
This year, he celebrates the 600th episode of his beloved A State of Trance radio show. And he’s not doing it alone. With an extensive world tour of 12 dates and cities, of which most broadcast live all across the globe, Armin will turn his milestone into a global happening.
The Dutch DJ, who won 5 of the prestigious awards last year, received 10 nominations within 9 categories. Armin van Buuren is in the running for ‘Best European’ and ‘Best Global DJ’, ‘Best Trance Track’ (twice, for both ‘Suddenly Summer’ and ‘J’ai Envie De Toi’), as well as the awards for ‘Best Radio Mix Show DJ’, ‘Best Producer’, ‘Best Artist (Solo)’, ‘Best Full Length DJ Mix’ for his A State of Trance 2012 compilation and ‘Best Podcast’ for his A State of Trance Podcast. Last but not least, Armada Music, the record label of which Armin is the co-founder, has won the ‘Best Global Record Label’ four years in a row and is once again nominated for the much-wanted award.
And the best part is, that you can help him by casting your vote! Make sure you vote before March 1st, via http://www.wintermusicconference.com/idmaballot/finalballot/!
