BEST OF BRITISH 2016 - VOTING NOW OPEN

Educated by Point Blank 

DJ Mag is a UK music mag — born and bred. So every year, as a counterweight to the international Top 100 DJs poll, we like to celebrate what’s going on on our own doorstep.

The Best Of British awards, educated by Point Blank, are where we celebrate British talent that has been truly shining in the last 12 months. We’ve nominated various people in a number of different categories, and we want you to decide who should receive the coveted trophies. Who deserves to be knighted for their services to the great British clubbing public? You decide!

Nominated by us but chosen by you, the voting categories — from Best DJ to Best Track to Best Dance Festival to Best Club-Night — are listed below. Get involved by choosing your favourites on our Best of British voting platform.

Voting is open until 11:59pm on 28th November 2016.
