Eliason Merit Award 2013


2013 Eliason Merit Award Winner – Steve Angello


We are beyond excited to announce that the Swedish House Music icon Steve Angello will receive the Eliason Merit Award 2013.  The winner came out of an unanimous decision by the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles’ Board of Directors.  Steve Angello receives the award for his persistent musical innovation that has put Sweden in the international spotlight and helped strengthen the relations between The United States and Sweden.
”To receive a price like this is a great honor,” says Steve Angello and continues, “When I heard that I was given a price for strengthening the Swedish-American relations it put a smile on my face. I have never gone in to any of these adventures for being awarded, it’s truly passion!  When something like this happens you feel powered to go further and work harder and therefore it means a great deal to me and the people on this journey supporting my cause and adventure! Thank you so much for the blessing and boost of power!”
The red carpet event will take place at the W Hollywood Hotel’s famous rooftop with unparalleled views of Los Angeles.  The award ceremony will feature top performances, including a celebrity-packed after party in Steve Angello’s honor.  More details regarding the evening and the entertainment will be announced soon so stay tuned.
