In only its second year, the WDM Radio Awards has already established itself as a goliath in the international awards calendar. Last year’s inaugural event was beamed into the homes of 9 million TV viewers, with over 900,000 tuning in via digital platforms. Acts like Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Alan Walker, Cedric Gervais, Vassy and NERVO performed live on stage, while 600,000 music fans from countries across the planet cast their votes for their favourite electronic acts and tracks of the year as broadcast by Los 40.

The sheer scale of the show’s reach should come as no surprise. With 192 stations in 12 countries, Los 40 has cornered the Spanish-speaking market on music radio, and dominates the airwaves in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Panamá, Paraguay, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Spain. With Spanish now officially the planet’s second language – only Chinese is more widely spoken – and Latin music’s huge surge in popularity into mainstream markets, the attraction for electronic music’s most in-demand acts to perform at the show and bag themselves a prestigious WDM Radio Award is crystal clear.
