Top 100 Festivals 2024: live results countdown

We're counting down the results from 2024's Top 100 Clubs poll live here today (Tuesday 25th June) from 12:30 BST

The results of the DJ Mag Top 100 Festivals 2024 poll are announced here today (Tuesday 25th June) from 12:30 BST. Voting in the poll opened on 1st May, and closed on 12th June.

The results will be announced below. You can tweet us @djmag and use #Top100Festivals to get involved.

The festival landscape has faced a tough few years due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing cost of living rising crisis. Over 40 UK festivals cancelled, postponed or permanently dissolved ahead of 2024's season, according to a report from the Association of Independent Festivals (AIF).

The latest numbers from AIF, which represents 202 festivals across the UK, ranging from 500 to 80,000 capacity, show that 172 events have ceased operations completely over the past five years. This includes 96 lost to the pandemic, 36 in 2023, and another 40 so far this year — 21 of which had been called off by late-March. Many more are now thought to be on the cusp of collapse, with analysts warning that unless targeted support is provided up to 100 could bow out by December. 

"The speed of festival casualties in 2024 shows no sign of slowing. We are witnessing the steady erosion of one of the UK’s most successful and culturally significant industries not because of a lack of demand from the public but because of unpredictable, unsustainable supply chain costs and market fluctuations,” said AIF CEO John Rostron. "In asking for a temporary reduction in VAT related to ticket sales, we have provided the Government with a considered, targeted and sensible solution, which would save this important sector. We need action now.”

With these challenges, it’s never felt more important or timely to celebrate all that festivals both large and small bring to our lives through their celebration of music, dancing and togetherness. Accordingly, a record-breaking number of votes were recorded in the DJ Mag Top 100 Festivals poll this year.
