The annual BBC Radio 1 Dance Awards honors dance music’s outstanding year. A year filled with international hits, innovative productions, and vivacious DJ sets on party islands all over the world. Star-studded talents like Chase & Status, Fred Again…, Nia Archives, TAAHLIAH, TSHAClementine Douglas, and LF SYSTEM were some of the significant winners at the awards ceremony. Radio 1 Dance DJs and producers served on the jury that determined the winners.

Commemorating this year’s Dance Awards Danny Howards says,

2022 has been an amazing year for dance music in terms of releases, new artists breaking through, and in the mainstream. More importantly, it’s the first full year we’ve had back in the clubs, Ibiza, and festivals since the pandemic which has created so many great moments. The Radio 1 Dance Awards is the perfect reflection of what has been a monumental year for the scene so I’d like to big up everyone shortlisted and say congratulations to all the winners. Thank you for the music and memories!
