On Monday 22nd September, Des Paul and Lucy Horobin presented the 17th edition of the annual DJ Awards at Pacha, Ibiza. There were 11 category awards voted for by the public, and 11 Special Awards judged by an independent music panel presented on a night of glitz and glamour as the summer season on the white isle draws to a close.
