About DJ Awards
Founded in 1998, DJ Awards launched during a time when the “Disc Jockey” began to have relevance never before seen. The electronic music landscape was changing fast and Ibiza was the catalyst.
Jose Pascual, closely linked to the night scene of the white island, is no stranger to these changes and he decided to launch the DJ Awards, a non-profit organisation that recognises the work, talent and originality of this new breed of musical artists. This was the start of the electronic music awards, whose transcendence is cooler and more internationally current than ever, 20 years later. Thus begins a new stage of the DJ Awards.

José Pascual comments “thanks to everyone who has made these 20 years possible, especially Lenny Krarup, Pacha, all the artists, managers, promoters, sponsors and media who have supported us. Jasmine Elias and the DJ Awards team, past and present, for all their support, energy and passion to keep the awards alive”
