The nominations have been announced for DJ Mag's Best Of British awards 2020.

This year marks the 14th 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. 

Due to the impact of the pandemic, we won’t be hosting our usual annual awards show and party at London’s Steelyard. Instead, we will be rolling out the winners as part of a digital event in December. There will be more news on that in the coming weeks. We have also revised the awards to reflect the nature of this unique year for electronic music. 

Voting for the DJ Mag Best of British awards is open now until 25th November. You can check the full list of categories and nominees below. Cast your votes here
