FOX Will Premiere First Ever Electronic Music Awards & Foundation

For the first time ever, FOX will premiere a brand new awards show focused solely on electronic music, of which Paul Oakenfold is an executive producer.

 

Aptly called the Electronic Music Awards & Foundation, the event will debut on FOX on Saturday, April 23rd at 8PM. Features, events, and appearances surrounding and during the event are still being formulated, so be sure to keep up with EMAF on their social media pages for up to the minute updates and news.

 

“I’m thrilled to be a part of an awards show that finally both recognizes and celebrates, on a primetime platform, one of the biggest music genres in the world today,” said executive producer Oakenfold.

 

The show will feature red carpet coverage, awards presentations, interviews and live performances from electronic music’s biggest artists.”

Club culture icon has been announced as the host for the inaugural Electronic Music Awards and Foundation.
