Martin Garrix, Diplo & Skrillex Win Big At The 2015 MTV EMAs


Ever since he exploded onto the scene in 2013 with the then ubiquitous “Animals”, success has seemed to come in spades for Martin Garrix. At just 19 years old, the Dutch wunderkind has collaborated with some of EDM’s biggest and most respected names, amassed a fortune (earning $17 million last year alone), and has played some of the most revered stages in the world. Now, Garrix can add another accolade to his long list of successes.

The DJ/producer just won Best Electronic Act at MTV’s 2015 EMAs. MTV’s European Music Awards took place this Sunday and Garrix beat out superstars like Avicii, Calvin Harris, David Guetta, and Major Lazer, by way of fans votes, to take home the award. Overall, it seems to be a good month for Garrix, as he placed an impressive 3rd in the much maligned DJ Mag Top 100 poll (up 1 spot from last year), and now has another trophy to add to his shelf.

Additionally, the trio of Skrillex, Diplo and Justin Bieber took home the award for Best Collaboration thanks to their hit song “Where Are U Now”.
