South Africa Selects Top 5 Nominees For First Annual Dance Music Awards


Following the announcement of the first annual official Dance Music Awards South Africa this past July, South African fans took to the internet to vote for the favourites for the past six weeks.

With the closing date for submissions closing this past Friday, the top final nominees in each category can finally be announced today. The nominee selection was held entirely online with the Dance Music Awards South Africa managed as an audience-voted award event dedicated to South African dance music.

This will be followed by public voting which will be made through the official website & social media until the 2nd October. With the fully transparent user voted award process, this gives the public the power to choose the award winners. Competition will be driven strictly by social media and online interaction, no “panel” will dictate the nominees.

The winners will be announced at an honorary dinner on the 5th October in Johannesburg.
