Denniz Pop Awards is a charitable foundation initiated in 2013. The foundation carries the name of Denniz Pop, our beloved friend, colleague, and mentor who left us far too early. It’s a way for us to both honor his memory, and carry on the legacy he once started.

Denniz Pop Awards is dependant on donations of individuals, businesses and organizations to help the foundation grow and enable us to do more to support Sweden’s new musical talents and the work of Radiumhemmet. Donate here.
