The last Wednesday in June marked the 2015 inthemix awards at the Ivy in Sydney, bringing together the biggest and best of the Australian dance music industry.

The top 5 also included last years winner Will Sparks at #2, MaRLo at #3, Tigerlily at #4 and Mashd N Kutcher at #5. Other noteworthy inclusions in the top 20 include Peking Duk at #10, SCNDL at #11, What So Not at #13 and A-Tonez at #18. Stereosonic was voted Australia's Favourite Festival, with Defqon.1 winning Favourite Event and Above & Beyond presented with Favourite International Artist.
A selected panel of local dance music industry figures judged the remainder of the awards, with Peking Duk named winners of the esteemed Artist of the Year award, Golden Features taking out Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Hayden James winning best track for 'Something About You' and label mates Flight Facilities winning Best Album for Down to Earth.
