15TH ANNUAL WEBBY SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD WINNERS

The Webby Special Achievement Awards will be presented by the Academy at the 15th Annual Webby Awards Celebration
June 13, 2011 in New York City. All of the Special Achievement Award winners will attend to receive their honors.

The Webby Awards is thrilled to honor LCD Soundsystem as the Webby Artist of the Year for fully harnessing the power and scope of the Internet as creative visionaries and musicians. LCD Soundsystem’s announcement of their final show was met with such fervent response from the music community that fans took to the Internet to express their ardent appreciation for the band; the final show not only sold out in minutes but also crashed ticket-selling sites. The highly sought out tickets became such a commodity that LCD Soundsystem front man James Murphy denounced scalpers publicly on his Twitter account. In an ingenious and unparalleled move, the band teamed up with music site Pitchfork.tv to live stream the final show in its entirety online for a global audience. LCD Soundsystem’s unparalleled decision to have the nearly 4-hour show live-streamed brought the online music community in a way only the Internet could, marking the night one of the most memorable moments online and off.

  • the last show was absolutely awesome and you guys definitely deserve it. best live act i’ve seen this year (beats anything i saw at coachella or other individual concerts). you guys rock! is there a party in ny on the 13th then…?

    After the disappointment of losing out at the MSG ticket slaughter, I was delighted by James’ response – both his online expose’ of sorts and his generous addition of the Terminal 5 shows. I was thrilled to be able to both hug the rail at Terminal 5 and hug a pillow on my couch for the final good-bye.

    best speech ever, James! :D
