Some of the most popular subgenres of EDM include house, techno, trance, dubstep, and drum and bass. Popular EDM artists include Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Tiësto, Avicii, Martin Garrix, and Swedish House Mafia.

There are several radio stations that exclusively play EDM music, including Electric Area on Sirius XM, BPM on Sirius XM, and DI.FM.
