A few months ago, Los Angeles-based house legend Paul Oakenfold announced that he would be collaborating with TV4 Entertainment to produce the first Electronic Music Awards show. Originally set to air on Apr 23, the show has been pushed back to an unannounced fall date, according to a representative that spoke with Billboard.
The producers likely delayed the airing of the show, because of the beginning of the festival season, with parties like Coachella conflicting with the premiere date.
Read the full statement below:
"As this is the first year of the awards, we have the luxury of flexibility, which we are taking advantage of to decide the optimal timetable to present the awards. With this opportunity, we felt that it would better to represent the electronic music calendar in the fall rather than the spring.”
