Electronic Music Is Getting A Televised Awards Show

Electronic music is getting its own awards show to go along with all of the other music-related awards shows that no one cares about! The newly-formed Electronic Music Awards And Foundation show will air on FOX in April, and will be overseen by TV4 Entertainment and music producer Paul Oakenfold. According to Variety, the show will “feature electronic music’s leading artists, creatives and executives, celebrating the early trailblazers and icons of the genre, as well as the top-trending acts of the industry today.” So, I’d imagine, it will be filled with a lot of stars of the bankable, festival-headlining EDM variety and less, like, experimental pioneers, because who would want to sit around and watch that on TV? We’ll see when it airs on FOX on 4/23.
