Voting is now open for this year's Top 100 DJs poll! Click here to vote.
With over 1 million votes cast each year from 179 countries, the Top 100 DJs is the definitive annual guide to the world's most popular DJs and is a living symbol of the strength of the global electronic music scene.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Top 100 DJs poll. As part of this landmark year, we'll be releasing exclusive historical content throughout the voting period to commemorate the anniversary.
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.
For a second consecutive year UNICEF, the global children’s organisation, is the official charity beneficiary of Top 100 DJs.
UNICEF works in over 190 countries around the world to keep children healthy, happy and safe. The Top 100 DJs poll has always had charity beneficiaries, however 2017 was a major escalation that saw the charity partner elevated to headline status. The partnership raised in excess of £30,000, including a personal donation of £10,000 by DJ Mag.
In 2018 and partnering for a second year with UNICEF, the ambitions for the campaign are to exceed £50,000 in donations to further support the incredible and on-going work undertaken by UNICEF and help build a better world for children.

The results will be announced on 21st October during a special awards ceremony at Amsterdam Music Festival (AMF) in front of 35,000 fans, during the world-renowned Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). In 2017 4 million people tuned in to watch Martin Garrix be crowned The World’s No.1 DJ for a second time.
On the night, fans will also be able to follow the announcement of the Top 100 DJs Results across DJ Mag's digital and social channels, culminating with the unveiling of The World’s No.1 DJ. The print magazine will then issue the Top 100 DJs edition on 25th October, featuring interviews with all Top 100 DJs entries in the poll.
So who will be this year's champion? It's all down to your votes, so choose wisely! Voting is open now and runs until 19th September at 11:59pm BST.
