The electronic dance movement is rising rapidly and the industry is honoring the pioneers who have strongly helped develop such a conscious community. This past Thursday, September 21st, Downtown Los Angeles in the Art District was well lit with electronic music enthusiasts for the EMAs.
The Electronic Music Awards (EMAs) was hosted at the Willow Studios entertaining fans, artists and honoring musicians.
With Paul Oakenfold as the organizer, there wasn’t a question that a wild night was about to occur. The event consisted of different innovative components making it an adventurous night.
Attendees had the opportunity to devour some delicious food from vendors while enjoying refreshing drinks from the various bars spread throughout the venue. There were two roofless stages set up including a tent stage for our dance moves that was accompanied with an art car hosted by The Saunderson Brothers.
Some of the musical performances included big names like Kidnap Kid, Illenium, Moby, Paul Oakenfold and Autograf. The EMAs had sectioned off an area where photos could be taken, including some games for a little more interactive fun.
The crowd’s energy was tangible as it was full of flow artists and performers interacting with their audience.
And the winners of the various Electronic Music Awards were…
