#News: Armin van Buuren, Daft Punk and Martin Garrix win big in the 2014 Beatport Awards!


The Beatport Awards honors the best-selling music of the year as well as the most culturally relevant and creatively important developments in the global dance music community. Winners are chosen in each category based on a host of criteria including total unit sales on Beatport, dance music community fan favorites, as well as selected by a trusted panel of dance industry experts within Beatport.

Beatport provides the perfect bridging for the two chapters of the year as they unveil this year’s Beatport Awards winners. Channeling votes from both sales statistics, a panel of experts and editorial staff, as well as fan choice, the awards present a wide variety of both scene dominating artists like Armin van Buuren and Martin Garrix but also make way for the lesser-represented tracks and artists that championed their way through 2013.
