Hosting the eventful night is the mastermind behind Los 40 and the WDM concept himself Luis Lopez, with followers throughout the entire world, particularly within the Spanish-speaking markets. With his radio shows consisting of over 6 million listeners each week, he has become one of the most influential electronic dance music radio and media enthusiasts. His WDM global radio music show has given electronic artists the opportunity to break within countries and markets unfamiliar with the dance music scene.
Since its upbringing about 8 years ago, The WDM brand has expanded widely, and has even taken part in prominent dance music events and acts such as ADE in Amsterdam, Unite: The Mirror to Tomorrowland in Mexico and Colombia, and several Ibiza show hostings featuring artists like Avicii, Nicky Romero, David Guetta, Steve Angello, Armin Van Buuren, Hardwell, Nervo, and many others. Hence, why Lopez’s idea of creating the first radio global awards for electronic music has been such a huge hit worldwide.
