DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll – 25 Years – This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Top 100 DJs poll. As part of this landmark year, DJ Mag have a series of epic historical content to release in the run-up to what is set to be the largest turn-out for the poll yet. As part of this landmark year and to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the landmark poll, DJ Mag will be running a 25-day social media countdown starting on 25th September.
Each day they will be releasing a piece of nostalgic Top 100 DJs content to represent each year since Top 100 DJs was founded in 1993. On the 25th day (Saturday 20th October), the winner of the 2018 Top 100 DJs Poll will be announced at the prestigious awards ceremony during Amsterdam Music Festival (AMF) in Amsterdam.
DJ Mag itself has been one of the largest and loudest voices in dance music since its arrival into the scene in 1991. Since then, and with the poll an integral part of its yearly schedule, DJ Mag has always been on top of the current state of dance music culture and the industry as a whole. Without a shadow of a doubt, this poll is the most talked-about poll in dance music and the winners reflect the current zeitgeist of the youth voice in dance music year on year.
Across its 24 previous winners the Top 100 DJs Poll has spanned the length and breadth of the electronic music sphere, from Carl Cox to Tiësto to David Guetta and Martin Garrix, proving that the poll is representative of the growth — or decline — of dance music scenes, reflecting the ebb and flow of genres as new sounds and scenes take hold and spread.
From headlining shows around the world to sold-out stadiums and countless record sales/streams to winning some of the biggest and most sought-after accolades in music, each and every artist that has topped the Top 100 DJs poll since it became a public voting system has left an unquestionable footprint on the culture of dance music. Today the Top 100 DJs has become a global event, annually drawing in excess of 1 million votes, making it the biggest publicly-voted music poll in the world. It has continually evolved alongside the ever-changing face and sound of dance music, by way of the voters’ choice for their selected winners, a statement backed up by the shapeshifting entries the poll has seen year-upon-year.
