With the Miami Music Week currently in full effect and the official countdown to Ultra Music Festival approaching its peak, there is an amazing amount of music news to cover. Thousands of music fans are making their way to South Florida – and Miami in particular – to be a part of it, and last night they witnessed the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) revealing its winners for 2018. Amongst them were Armin van Buuren and NERVO, claiming best mainstream male and female artist(s) respectively. Not surprisingly, Ultra Music Festival won the award for best music festival.

The IDMA‘s are the longest running awards ceremony dedicated to the electronic music industry, hosting its 32nd edition last night as part of the Winter Music Conference (WMC). The IDMA’s generate over two million votes from music fans in 209 countries and territories every year, to recognize and honor exceptional achievements in 20 award categories. Besides NERVO and Armin van Buuren, Axwell Λ Ingrosso won an award for best song (‘More Than You Know’), while the best remix award went to Alesso‘s remix of ‘Something Just Like This’ by The Chainsmokers ft. Coldplay.
