We are excited to be nominated for two major awards at the Radio 1 Dance Awards 2024, Best Record Label and Best Dance Festival (UK & Europe) for our flagship festival Defected Croatia. It’s an honour to be recognised on home turf by our national broadcaster, alongside the best of the rest in UK dance music.

Since Radio 1 Dance launched in 2020, it’s been a keystone of dance music in the UK thanks to its 24/7 showcase of current, future and classic tracks.

The vote is public so if you’d like to show your support, voting is now open on the official BBC website: bbc.co.uk/danceawards

Voting closes at 8pm on Friday 16th February and the winner will be announced at a later date, live on BBC Radio 1.

Win or lose, this marks an incredible start to our 25th anniversary celebrations, and we can’t wait for the next edition of Defected Croatia to reach new, dizzying heights in summer of 2024.
