International Dance Music Awards Miami 2011

Das legendäre Amnesia auf Ibiza wurde bei der Winter Music Conference in Miami im Zuge der Wahl der „International Dance Music Awards“ zum „Best Global Club“ ausgezeichnet. Damit liess der spanische Club unter anderem Clubs wie das Berghain in Berlin, das Fabric in London, das Ministry of Sound in London und das Space auf Ibiza hinter sich.

Die Wahl der „International Dance Music Awards“ viel sehr kommerziell aus. Die meisten Preise gingen an Armin van Buuren, David Guetta und die Sweedish House Mafia. Bester DJ weltweit und bester europäischer DJ wurde Armin van Buuren.

Nominierte Künstler wie der Mainzer Exportschlager Butch oder der Cocoon Artis Jooris Voorn konnten keinen Preis abräumen. Auch der nominierte Radiosender Sunshine Live ging leer aus. Alle Gewinner im Überblick:
