The global house community come together to celebrate house music at the first ever global House Music Awards.

Launched at this year’s WMC, the House Music Awards recognise the movers, the shakers, and the people behind the scenes that bring us the music that we love and the parties that we can’t live without!!  750,000 people go clubbing every weekend in the UK alone, so as club culture continues to evolve and house music re-emerges to take over the charts, House Music Awards celebrate and showcase some of the finest talent - past, present and future - that House Music has to offer.

As well as the obvious big categories like Best DJ, Best Album & Track of the Year, the House Music Awards also recognise some of the more underground talent with Awards that include Most Innovative Producer, Breakthrough Label and Breakthrough DJ. Blaze, Roger Sanchez, Basement Jaxx, Reel People, Chemical Brothers, Junior Jack, Pete Tong and the Shapeshifters are amongst the Nominees.

House Music Awards winners will be announced to a house loving crowd and the cream of the industry on Thursday 4th November at BenEverything But The Girl’ Watt’s excellent new London venue, Neighbourhood, in Ladbroke Grove. The event will focus on live performance, with some of house music’s hottest acts performing on the night including Shapeshifters, Martin Solveig, Mutiny, Stonebridge, Ron Carroll, Kujay Dada & Reel People. Hosted by Bryan Chambers, there will also be very special surprise DJ sets from two of the world’s hottest DJs. 


Radio 1 Essential Selection
will be featuring guest mixes and profile pieces on Award winners later this year. They will also be at the event to record the best bits of the night and interview crowd members for broadcast on the show. With support from the likes of Pete Tong, Erick Morillo, Tim Deluxe, Hed Kandi & the Godfather of House, Frankie Knuckles - the House Music Awards will no doubt become an essential event on dance music’s calendar.

The House Music Awards are unique because they are decided entirely by the people that live & love the music. Voting closes on 22 October.
