Voting for the DJ Mag Best of British awards 2021 is open now until 29th November. You can check the full list of categories and nominees, and cast your vote, here.

This year marks the 15th edition of the awards, our annual celebration of UK talent. Positioned as a counter-balance to the global Top 100 DJs poll, our Best Of British awards are a chance to shine a spotlight on the homegrown talent that continues to place the UK scene at the forefront of electronic music.

For this year’s Best of British awards, DJ Mag has teamed up with Youth Music. The charity partner equalises access to making, learning and earning in music for all young people. They’ve made incredible steps towards breaking down barriers in the music industry, to ensure that the sound of the next generation is more diverse, more relevant, more equitable and more creative.

Best of British Awards is supported by Hoxton Spirits and White Claw Hard Seltza.
