|Presented by||National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences|
|Currently held by||Justice, Woman Worldwide (2019)|
The Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album is an award presented at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1958 to recording artists for quality albums in the dance music and electronica genres. Honors in several categories are presented at the ceremony annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to "honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position".
In June 2014, NARAS announced a small change in the naming of the category, from Dance/Electronica to Dance/Electronic. It was agreed that "the title for this genre has evolved, and updating it more accurately represents the industry nomenclature of today.", according to the Grammy committee.
According to the category description guide, the award is presented "for albums containing at least 51% playing time of new vocal or instrumental electronica/dance recordings". It is intended for "groove-oriented recordings with electronic-based instrumentation". Compilation or remixed recording albums are not eligible for this category.
Skrillex received the award three times, while Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers each received it twice. The Chemical Brothers hold the record for most nominations with five. Deadmau5 and Robyn hold the record for most nominations without a win with, three.
