The EDM scene in Mexico is massive and getting bigger everyday. The EMPO Awards, staged by EMPO TV which were held this past weekend, set out to honour the EDM artists and the music that the Mexican public loved most over the past year as well as to celebrate their own seventh anniversary.
Anyone who follows Dash Berlin at all knows that the Dutchman is very much a fan favorite in Mexico (remember the World Cup bet last year?) and that was made official when, in addition to winning a Best Album award (for We Are Part 1) Dash was presented with an award naming him Best Loved EDM Artist in Mexico, a big honour indeed.
The awards ceremony was preceded by a special concert for teens, EMPO Kids, which saw the eager crowds entertained by Like Mike and Dmitri Vegas as well as Madeon, Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, Firebeatz and Above & Beyond. Dash didn't perform, but he did spend the evening mingling with his Mexican fans thanking them for their support, which for everyone involved was a pretty big thrill in itself.
