Move over Grammys, step aside American Music Awards ... because there is a brand new awards show set to make its debut this April, and its focus is on one genre: EDM. That's right, the inaugural awards show called the "Electronic Music Awards & Foundation," will celebrate dance music this coming April in Los Angeles.
The "Electronic Music Awards & Foundation" is the result of a partnership between LA-based production company TV4 Entertainment, and electronic music legend Paul Oakenfold, and FOX. The awards show will be filmed on April 14th at the SLS hotel in LA, and set to air on FOX on April 23rd 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

The show itself is set to honor both the early trailblazers and icons of electronic music, as well as the biggest dance music acts dominating the radio waves and charts today. In addition to awards presentations, the broadcast will also feature a red carpet, exclusive interviews, and, of course, live performances from your favorite DJs.
Paul Oakenfold says of the inaugural awards show:
"I'm thrilled to be a part of an awards show that finally both recognizes and celebrates, on a primetime platform, one of the biggest music genres in the world today."
