DJ Awards 2015 announces Categories & Nominees

We are excited to announce the 2015 DJ Awards line-up of Categories & Nominees. 10 DJ categories including Deep House, Electronica, Tech House, Techno, Trance, Newcomer, Breakthrough and International DJ. Two categories have been revamped: Electro becomes Electro/Progressive House; and Drum & Bass/Dubstep changes to Bass – an umbrella for Drum & Bass, Dubstep and Garage.

We´ve spent the past few months compiling these nominations with the guidance of a panel of prominent key names within the industry. The final nominees cross over a broad spectrum of DJs, from those unshakable names riding high to new cutting edge contenders. If you think there are some obvious names missing, that´s due to some DJs feeling that a packed dance floor is enough recognition for them and we support that 100%!

The categories are now open for the public to vote for their favourites to win the prestigious Kryptonite awards at

Also announced are 12 Special Industry Awards that will be chosen by our panel, and these awards will be presented during the ceremony.
