DJ Mag has once again opened its virtual doors to the crowds of electronic music in order to support their favorite artists with a vote for the magazine’s annual Top 100 DJs list. This year marks the 26th anniversary of the poll that grew itself to the world’s most prominent EDM-related voting, attracting more than one million fans each year to help determine who deserves the prestigious first place. The past 3 years Martin Garrix brought home the prize, and the rest of the list was dominated by big room performers (you can see the full results of last year’s ranking here). In order to give more credit to house and techno artists, the Alternative Top 100 DJs poll will return supported by Beatport.
Most performers are going wild to remind us why they deserve our votes. Remember when Robert van de Corput, better known as Hardwell, jumped out of a plane, landing on a DJ Mag banner to prove his dedication to his fans? We can’t wait for this year’s campaigns by the DJs who are hoping that it will help them climb the ladder of hierarchy.
The voting officially commenced on 10th of July and lasts until 18th September, leaving us a few months to decide our personal TOP 5 artists. And there is more to it: DJ Mag teamed up with UNICEF once again to raise awareness and funds in order to promote the rights and wellbeing of children in underdeveloped countries. With the noble aim, Top 100 DJs has raised almost £70,000 for UNICEF, being able to provide enough vaccines to protect 815,175 children from tetanus.
After the voting terminates, the results will be announced in October during ADE, alongside an outstanding indoor electronic festival and the award show hosted by AMF (Amsterdam Music Festival) at the Johan Cruijff ArenA for 7 consecutive years now. If you would like to be part of celebrating The World’s No. 1 DJ in 2019, now you have the chance to win an exclusive prize after voting, including transportation, accommodation, and tickets to AMF. Check out this year’s line up here and make sure you cast your vote for your preferred DJ or producer at DJ Mag’s website to have them ranked as high as possible on the top list.
