Mixcloud Announces 2017 Online Radio Awards Winners


The winners of Mixcloud’s 2017 Online Radio Awards have been announced!

Founded in 2014, the Online Radio Awards are the world’s biggest celebration of online radio, with more than 10,000 entries submitted this year — making it the awards’ biggest year yet. The entries were whittled down to a series of shortlists before an expert panel of industry judges selected the winners.  The awards provide an important platform for DJs, podcasters, and radio stations from all over the world, focusing on independent shows and stations whose primary means of distribution is via the internet.

“It goes without saying that now is a truly exciting time to be involved in online radio and audio,” said Nikhil Shah, Mixcloud co-founder. “ We launched the Online Radio Awards four years ago because these communities deserve to be celebrated, so it was brilliant to see so many strong contenders for 2017 — a year when Podcast and DJ cultures and the communities within them are thriving more than ever.”

Split across four groups, the awards included categories for Best Online Music Show, Best Online Radio Show, Best Online Radio Personality, and Best Online Talk Show.

Mixcloud teamed up with 11 partners to present this year’s awards, representing some of the key players in audio culture. The partners included Cómeme, Dimensions Festival, Discogs, Good Hope FM, Kiss FM Australia, Livescape, Music Is My Sanctuary, Resident Advisor, SXSW FM, The Find Mag, and Wonderfruit, each of whom offered guidance and support during the awards.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
