DJ Mag Reveal Their Top 100 DJs For 2017

For the second year in a row, Dutch prodigy Martin Garrix has taken out the #1 spot in DJ Mag‘s annual poll of the world’s top 100 DJs.

The ‘Animals’ hitmaker beat out strong competition from Belgian duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and trance don Armin Van Buuren to nab the top spot, retaining his title as the youngest ever winner of the award. Previous winners Hardwell and Tiesto round out the top five, while American frat boys The Chainsmokers just missed out, coming in at #6.

All the usual big hitters make it into to the top 20 — including David Guetta, Afrojack, KSHMR, and Oliver Heldens — but some big names have slipped in the rankings this year: Skrillex dropped 7 places to end up at #16, Deadmau5 dropped 18 places to secure #49, and Dillon Francis slipped to #86, 22 positions lower than last year.

Local favourite Flume once again made the grade at #87 (despite the fact he doesn’t tend to DJ — he plays live), and Sydney export Alison Wonderland coolly makes her DJ Mag at #89. Wonderland is one of only four female acts to make it onto the list, with fellow Aussies Nervo, Mariana Bo, and Miss K8 both making the cut.

Check out the full list below.
