While most of the fan votes were cast online at the America’s Best DJ website, the America’s Best DJ Summer Tour presented by Pioneer DJ & DJ Times supported the contest by allowing fans to vote in-person at 20+ club and festival events, which included Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival, Detroit’s Movement Festival and Baltimore’s Moonrise Festival, among the dates.

The DJ/producer and owner of the famed Dirtybird Records will be honored September 30th in San Diego at the ABDJ Award Ceremony/Closing Party. Dirtybird is an independent label formed by Claude VonStroke over ten years ago in his bedroom in San Francisco, today VonStroke and the label remain a fiercely independent and intimate operation. For his achievement, Claude will be presented with a special trophy – a personalized, gold-plated Pioneer DJM-900nexus mixer at Omnia Nightclub San Diego.

My fans are so kind hearted and amazing and I love them so much for creating such an awesome community where people feel safe and can have fun together. They voted for me to win over artists with huge radio hits and business machines which is so inspiring and surprising, for that I am truly humbled.
