The WDM Radio Awards have confirmed Dillon Francis, R3hab and Cheat Codes to join Don Diablo, Steve Aoki, Robin Schulz, Jax Jones and Tujamo at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City on March 21st.
The addition of the famously irreverent Francis, fan favourite R3hab and the multi-platinum selling Cheat Codes should delight the live audience of 90,000 packed into the heart of the Mexican capital, with millions more tuning into the show around the world via TV and online streaming.
The WDM Radio Awards show has swiftly become the biggest electronic music awards show in the world. Powered by Los 40, who broadcast across a huge network of 192 stations in 12 countries, the WDM Radio Awards has easily highlighted the growing importance of the vast Spanish-speaking market to electronic music artists and labels.
Presenting the show is Luis Lopez, the voice behind WDM Radio. One of the most influential figures in music – with his show hitting a weekly audience of 6 million listeners – he has become arguably the most important tastemaker in radio.
“For Latin people, electronic music is a feeling that if you have it, it will stay with you forever. I haven’t met more grateful fans than Latin fans, they give it their all,” Lopez said. “Their energy and passion for the music is always so high, that having an army of listeners like the ones we have at WDM give us so much power.”
In total, 78 acts will compete across 12 categories vying for the all-important gongs: Best Global Track, Best Remix, Best Bass Track, Best Dancefloor Track, Best Trending Track, Best New Talent, Best Electro House DJ, Best DJ, Best Party DJ, King of Social Media, Best Deep House DJ and Best Electronic Vocalist. Fans from all nations will be able to vote for their favourites at www.wdmradioawards.com until voting closes on March 14th ahead of the spectacle itself.
