Text by Len Iima (HigherFrequency)

Another Miami Winter Music Conference has come and gone. With all the parties, releases, and special events, the highlight of every WMC would have to be the International Dance Music Awards. With over 10,000 ballots cast by almost everyone in the industry, the results are in.

It was no big surprise that Tiesto took home Best Global DJ and Best Full Length DJ Mix CD, just as the WMC won the Best Dance Event (who would have guessed). However the biggest winner at the event was Fedde Le Grand who won Best Breakthrough Solo Artist, Best Underground Dance Track and Best Breaks/Electro Track.
