DJ Mag’s 2015 Top 100 DJs poll results are in

Hardwell might have been hoping to take his DJ Mag 100 streak to three wins in a row, but 2015 hasn’t been the Dutchman’s year. The latest DJ Mag Top 100 results have been revealed today at ADE and for the first time, Belgian duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have claimed the top spot.

They’ve bumped Hardwell down to the #2 position in the annual poll of the world’s favourite DJs, with Martin Garrix – who was tipped by some to take out this year’s list – sitting at #3.

“Since day one we’ve put every bit of energy and time we can into our music and our shows in order to give the fans the greatest experience any DJ could offer,” Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike told fans today from Amsterdam. “So it’s such an incredible honour to receive this award knowing it’s from the guys that matter most to us.”

Mainstays Armin van Buuren, Tiesto and David Guetta have all stuck in the top ten, with Avicii polling at #7, Afrojack at #8, OWSLA head Skrillex at #9 and Steve Aoki at #10. All up, nearly 30 percent of the names who made DJ Mag’s list call The Netherlands home.

Further down the list, superstar DJs Calvin Harris, Diplo and Axwell /\ Ingrosso all make an appearance, while UK house heroes Disclosure make their first appearance in the poll at #65. Two Australians – Melbourne bounce hero Will Sparks and trance name MaRLo – both placed in this year’s list. DJ Mag have also revealed that outside the Top 100, “Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Marco Carola, Sasha, Paul Kalkbrenner, Loco Dice, Flosstradamus and Fatboy Slim are all in the next 50 – despite not campaigning for votes whatsoever.”
