The world’s biggest publicly voted music poll returns! The Top 100 DJs poll 2016 is now open and closes at 1 AM CEST on September 14.
The Top 100 DJs Poll began as an editorial feature in October 1993, to celebrate DJ Mag's 100th issue. It was predominantly UK-based at first, but when the poll was opened up to the international scene via website voting, it truly exploded. As well as its significance for individual DJs, the Top 100 DJs Poll also documents the growth - or decline - of dance music scenes, reflecting the ebb and flow of genres as new sounds and scenes take hold and spread.
“The Top 100 DJs poll 2016 is now open!”
The DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll has been with us since the very first AMF event in 2012 and has seen some big names like Hardwell, David Guetta and Armin van Buuren receiving their award on the AMF stage. In 2014, Hardwell was crowned the No.1 DJ for the second consecutive year, toppling five-time No.1 DJ Armin van Buuren. Other previous winners include Tiesto (three times), Paul van Dyk (twice), Paul Oakenfold (twice), Carl Cox (twice), Sasha and John Digweed.
In 2015, the Top 100 DJs Poll saw almost one million votes cast from every country on the planet. 2015 saw 21 new entries, 3 re-entries, and 7 non-movers. Oliver Heldens was the Highest House DJ, up 22 places. Diplo moved into the Top 20, and also placed for his Jack U project (with Skrillex).
“In 2014, Hardwell was crowned the No.1 DJ for the second consecutive year, toppling five-time No.1 DJ Armin van Buuren.”
2015 winning Belgian duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike will have to go head to head again this year with all other DJs to defend their prize. Voting starts now, so cast your vote here to make sure your number one DJ takes that award home!
