Over the last 4 years the Trance Awards have become the decisive final word on whose is smashed it hardest in the scene over the preceding 12 months. With every aspect of the genre covered across its 13 categories, the Awards are now set to enter their 5th huge year as the 2009 voting gets underway at 11am (GMT) on the 1st of September.

Last year tens of thousands of you spokeâ€¦ At the 2008 awards Paul van Dyk walked away with the Best DJ trophy, while other winners included TiÃ«sto (who took home Best Remixer), Armin who scooped Best Resident and Sied van Riel who arrived in pole position for Best New Face.
The 2009 poll will conclude four weeks later on the 29th of September and after a methodical check of the results, the winners will be announced at the Trance Awards Party. Taking place at the Ministry of Sound on October the 9th, itâ€™s unquestionably going to be another â€˜must-not-be-missedâ€™ entry in your 2009 clubbing calendar!
