From its modest origins as a small café over 140 years ago, the Arnau family has fostered an empire that has evolved into the renowned phenomenon known as Elrow. This vibrant and immersive experience has revolutionized the electronic music landscape. Elrow's parties are celebrated for their extravagant blend of music, costumes, and performance art, captivating audiences globally, including their annual residency at Amnesia Ibiza.


Juan Arnau Jr. and Cruz Arnau represent the latest generation of the Arnau Family, continuing a legacy that spans six generations of pioneering contributions to Spain's dance music scene. From establishments like Florida135 and Monegros Desert Festival to Row14 and Elrow, the Arnau Family has been instrumental in shaping Spain's nightlife culture.

The Arnau Family joins an illustrious list of previous recipients of the IMS Legends Award, including luminaries such as Underworld, Nile Rodgers, Fatboy Slim, and Carl Cox.

Expressing their gratitude, Juan Arnau Jr. and Cruz Arnau remarked, "Truly thank you from the entire Arnau family and also and above all from our grandmother Pilar, who at 95 years old is extremely excited to receive in our name and from her home, in the middle of the fragatine orchard, this recognition of so many years of passion that all of us have had for the art of making our clients dance."

IMS Partner Ben Turner lauded the Arnau family's legacy: "The Arnau family and the El Row brand are true disruptors of global nightlife, not just Ibiza. A family legacy that has been promoting underground music and nightlife in Spain for generations, they are one of the truly great success stories of our industry and consumer culture."

In addition to honouring the Arnau Family, the Beatport Awards will recognize outstanding artists from across the globe in various categories, including Best Selling Track of the Year, Best Selling Artist of the Year, and Producer of the Year, among others.
