While looking around for some of the best EDM subreddits, we've come across many dance music related sub-reddits which have a large community, but poor submissions. All too often we come across a community that only wants to spam people with their “next big hit.” Here are 10 of our favorite EDM related sub-reddits.
The EDM sub-reddit is one of the most popular sub-reddits simply for its name “EDM.” /r/EDM is highly moderated with 8 rules to follow. Despite having a great name, this sub-reddit really does a great Job with a wide variety of submissions and also does a great job at recommending other sub-reddits to explore in the Electronic Dance Music scene.
The Monstercat sub-reddit is a community related to all things related to Monstercat and the electronic dance music community. Often times we notice that the Monstercat sub-reddit has one of the most loyal and interactive groups of people on Reddit.
The Electronic Music sub-reddit is “a place to share, learn and talk about anything electronic music.” This sub-reddit has one of the largest communities for EDM at 126,000 people and is highly moderated where as many of the spammy articles and song submissions are removed. Be sure to join in on the vibrant Discussion Topics.
The Skrillex sub-reddit is one of our favorite artist related sub-reddits. This community of 6,000 “lost boys” offers information on anything and everything Skrillex related.
The Coachella sub-reddit is one of the most active festival sub-reddits we've seen year round. Whether the community is prepping for the next year of Coachella or sharing other local events, we highly recommend this sub-reddit.
We included the /r/aves sub-reddit because not only is the name great play on words, but it also offers a great community on events and festivals. /r/aves was “created in the same vein as /r/festivals, this is a subreddit for everyone to find and announce raves/warehouse parties/shows/whatever, as well as general discussion of electronic music and everything else that comes from the electronic scene itself.”
While hardstyle is not always the most popular sub-genres, we absolutely love the hardstyle community. They are truly passionate about the music as you'll be able to see after subscribing to this sub-reddit.
Even though it seems like the trance sub-genre is losing popularity amongst other genres, the trance family is still going strong in this sub-reddit. The 10 moderators do a great job at monitoring the submissions of more than 36,000 people.
The trap sub-reddit does something interesting that we have not seen on many other sub-reddits. In order to comment or vote on posts, you must first subscribe to the sub-reddit. With over 44,000 readers, the Trap community on this sub-reddit provides great insight into the trap music scene.
The EDM production sub-reddit is a subreddit “for those wishing to discuss electronic dance Music Production.” Whether you are looking for future bass tutorials or looking for Splice projects, we highly recommend this subreddit for up and coming producers.
