Celebrating diversity and inclusion in the industry, our ‘Inclusivity in Music Award’ shines a light on those providing further accessibility and representation within the dance community. House music was based upon the foundations of diversity, which is often forgotten or overlooked as the electronic music scene has become more mainstream. In this category, we set to celebrate those that are authentically flying the flag for inclusivity and diversity across the board, and encouraging widespread interaction, support and awareness for future generations.
