WATCH THE APMAS RED CARPET RIGHT NOW:
XI Media Productions— named one of the Top 50 Creatives/Technologists for 2016 by Studio Daily and winner of over a dozen Telly and DV Video Awards— will film this year’s production. XI have produced live streams watched by millions of music fans all over the country for Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, NPR, Vans, Dell, Matador, Merge, Atlantic, Vevo and more.
“The APMAs serve the artists and fans that celebrate living life at full tilt and not making sacrifices in order to produce the art that they want to make and hear,” says Founder of XI Media Productions Dusty Kraatz. “XI Media have always approached producing live music content in the same way. We have survived this long in the industry by always taking the punk-rock approach and doing things our own way. In that respect, partnering with AP to produce this year's APMAs is a perfect fit and feels like the culmination of everything we have done to this point.
“Our goal this year is to allow the intensity and raw energy that is the spirit of the APMAs to really shine by producing an award show that isn't quietly sitting back and observing from a distance. We are making sure our viewing audience is looking at their host Andy Biersack, and the rest of this year's amazing lineup of artists, right in the face with an unflinching gaze. It’s our goal to make you feel every bit of blood, sweat and fun as it unfolds on the stage.”
