The IDMA Advisory Board
The IDMAs have undergone a complete update to its governing body, categories, and voting processes. Electronic music now has its very own advisory board that helps to define what the IDMA’s become and brings a new credibility to the awards like never before. The IDMA Advisory Board is composed of major players within the electronic music community, including notable artists, managers, agents, publicists, and promoters, among others.
Part of the IDMAs is powered by Viberate – the world’s biggest crowdsourced platform for listing and mapping the live music industry. Using their metrics-based platform, the Viberate team helps to populate the IDMA artist categories and present a set of nominees based on true artist popularity and free from industry favoritism and politics. Nominees for the remaining IDMA categories are selected by the IDMA Advisory Board, with the winners of all categories being determined by a public vote.
