DJ Mag‘s Best Of British Awards, powered by Relentless Energy, returns for 2018 with an extensive list of nominations and locks in Eats Everything, Jamz Supernova and more for performances at Egg London on Thursday 13th December 2018.
A celebration of Britain’s diverse and thriving electronic music scene, the nominees, from breaking DJs to established club series and pioneering record labels, are a reflection of exactly that, with SOPHIE, Nabihah Iqbal and CamelPhat leading the pack with two nods each, while Fatboy Slim receives an Outstanding Contribution award and The Loop are hailed for a trailblazing year in the Innovation & Excellence category. The full list of nominations are below.
The awards ceremony itself promises to be an unmissable occasion once again, as the biggest names gather at one of London’s most iconic clubs. Tech house titan Eats Everything, the rapidly rising Mason Maynard, Deep Sea Frequency head honcho Breakwave, 1Xtra icon Jamz Supernova, Abode resident Ellie Cocks and a clutch of very special guests will all play genre-spanning sets across the night to ensure the party carries on long after the final gong is handed out.
Now in its twelfth year, the Best Of British Awards continues to shine a light on the most diverse corners of British dance music culture, championing groundbreaking artists while looking firmly to the future. With voting now open, you can cast yours here: bestofbritish.djmag.com
