In the first 7 days of open voting, the Harddanceawards.com website has been running red with traffic from all corners of the dance planet.
Fanatical followers have cast nearly 10,000 votes for their favourite DJs, producers and promoters across all sounds and styles of hard dance music. This staggering quantity showcases the passion and dedication to the scene shown by the hardcore fan base that travel far and wide to support their heroes each weekend.
The Hard Dance Awards website is also bursting to the seams with more interviews and playlists than ever before. In the last week, the team at leading download store Trackitdown.net (who power the project) have published nearly 150 exclusive interviews with the most important players.
This unprecedented amount of content makes for great reading. Never before has there been so much variety and with the scene making headway in new parts of the world we look forward to seeing even more permutations of the sound as new outposts influence global trends. Territories such as Australia have developed communities of artists whose productions are now supported by headliners worldwide, and with dedicated events now drawing up to 20,000 ravers who come to watch local and international talent it’ll be great to how this part of the world builds in the future.
The results will be announced at the first international showcase event at The Matrixx club in Holland on Friday 9th March where the world’s industry and most dedicated fans will join forces to celebrate what is undoubtedly another great year for hard dance music and culture – see you there!
