Voting is open in 2015’s DJ Mag Top 100 poll

In 2014, Dutch don Hardwell snagged the top spot for the second year running in DJ Mag’s annual poll of the world’s most popular DJs. Now, thanks to the power of dance music democracy, you can have your say in who should snag the #1 spot for 2015 – voting in this year’s poll is officially open, so head here to get involved.

As for Hardwell’s main competition? Young gun Martin Garrix was hotly-tipped last year to overtake his fellow Dutchman, instead claiming the #4 spot, while Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike were 2014’s number two. Veteran favourites Armin van Buuren and Tiesto rounded out last year’s top five, with Avicii, David Guetta, Nicky Romero, Skrillex and Steve Aoki all cracking the top ten.

But just over 12 hours into this year’s DJ Mag season, some big names are already calling out the ever-divisive poll. “I never have a dig at any awards etc but… it’s literally no one you’d ever see in a DJ booth rather than stage,” dubstep-turned-disco player Skream tweeted. “Also it’s really strange to me that DJ’s who rarely perform in the UK get into the top 100 in a UK mag.”

And then, there’s Deadmau5: “If “potato” doesn’t make the top10 I’ll be really disappointed,” the Mau5trap head joked in typically sardonic style as the poll opened. Head here to cast your vote, and catch up with 2014’s results below.
