DJ Mag reveal their Top 100 DJs for 2016

Martin Garrix has taken the top spot in DJ Mag‘s annual poll of the world’s top 100 DJs.

The Dutch prodigy has secured his first #1 victory at just 20 years-old, making him the youngest ever winner of DJ Mag‘s annual poll. Garrix was widely-tipped to take out 2015’s poll but was controversially beaten out by Belgian duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, who have been knocked back to the #2 spot for 2016.

Rounding out the top five for 2016 are a trio of previous winners – Hardwell at #3, Armin van Buuren at #4 and Tiesto at #5.

“It feels unreal to have won,” Garrix said in a press release. “I 100 percent did not expect it at all. I’ve had an amazing year, with awesome shows and amazing fans – I’m so thankful for their support. I didn’t even do a campaign, and it just shows how dope the fanbase is.”

Mainstage heroes David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Oliver Heldens, Skrillex and Afrojack have all made it into the top 10, while retirement hasn’t stopped Avicii from hitting the #11 spot. Further down the list the likes of Diplo, DJ Snake, Calvin Harris and Eric Prydz all feature.

For the first time in 2016, Sydney’s own Flume – who doesn’t actually DJ, preferring to play live – has made it into the list, clocking in at #94. Fellow Australians Will Sparks, Timmy Trumpet, Marlo and Nervo also made the cut. See 2016’s full Top 100 results below.
