The nominees for DJ Mag's Best Of British awards 2023 have been announced.
This year marks the 17th 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.
As part of our Best of British awards, we’ll return to London’s The Steel Yard on Thursday 14th December for a very special event where the winners will be announced.
The nominations, which you can see below, are split across 17 categories. The awards show in December will also see the return of our editorial choice category for Outstanding Contribution.
Voting for the DJ Mag Best of British awards 2023 is open now until Friday 1st December. You can check the full list of categories and nominees below and cast your vote here.
Voters in DJ Mag’s Best of British awards save 50% on advance tickets, which are on sale at djtickets.com. The discount code is provided at the end of the voting process. £1 from each DJTickets purchase will be donated to Youth Music, the official charity partner of DJ Mag’s Best of British awards.
