Top 100 DJs poll 2018: The next 50

Here are the acts who just missed out on the Top 100...

As you’ve no doubt seen by now, Martin Garrix was unveiled as the world’s No.1 DJ in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll last month (October), while in the upper echelons there’s not a great deal of movement — bar a few significant exceptions.

Belgian brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike (the Highest Group) hold steady at No.2, while Hardwell leapfrogs over Armin van Buuren to claim the No.3 slot, despite — or perhaps because of — announcing that he’s stopping touring for an indefinite period.

ASOT man Armin, of course, remains the Highest Trance DJ at No.4 — he hasn’t finished out of the top four for the last 13 years. David Guetta has had a good year, jumping up two places to No.5 — overtaking Tiësto in the process.

But the big news in the top 10 is Don Diablo jumping four places to claim the No.7 slot, and cementing his place in the big league — claiming the Highest Future House DJ award in the process. Afrojack and Marshmello hold steady at No.8 and No.10 respectively, while Oliver Heldens — who slid out of the top 10 last year — jumps four places to finish at No.9.

But what about the acts that fell just short of the Top 100 DJs rankings? Here, we reveal the next 50 DJs in the list — and there's a diverse smattering of music styles representing the breadth of dance music as a genre.
