Tomorrowland named Best Dance Festival for the fourth year in a row
During the annual Miami Winter Music Conference, Tomorrowland was named Best Festival in the world for the fourth year running. The popular dance festival Tomorrowland, which takes place in Boom, was the only European festival to be nominated. It won, beating American festivals including Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Music Festival.
Every year thousands of DJs, artist managers, record labels, event organisers and club owners gather in the heart of Miami for the Miami Winter Music Conference. During this music highlight there is also a presentation of the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA), the unofficial Oscars of the dance music industry. Every year more than two million people around the word vote for their favourites and this year marked the thirtieth time that prizes were awarded.
The Belgian DJ duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike also won a prize for the third year running. This year they won the Best European DJ Award, beating among others Avicii and Nicky Romero. “Every award we win gives us extra encouragement to keep on doing more for our fans. Their positive energy gives us even more of a boost and even more passion. There's not much time to celebrate this award, but shortly, from behind the turntable, I will bring the house down with a huge smile on my face”, stated Dimitri Vegas.
