DJ Mag Top 100 DJs 2021 Results Announced

David Guetta wins DJ Mag Top 100 DJs 2021.

Each year, DJ Mag launches its annual DJ poll, where fans all around the world can choose five different DJs and rank them. 1.3 million users have voted this year.

This year the celebration took place during Amsterdam Music Festival at AFAS Live. Thanks to the new regulation by the Dutch government, ADE was able to go forward and, with it, the in-person Award Ceremony.

Coming out at #1 again this year is David Guetta, with MORTEN coming in at #39 as highest new entry thanks to their new future rave sound and popularity. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike fall out of the top 3 for the first time in years, and Armin van Buuren moves back in! Martin Garrix moves up one to #2.

As part of this year’s Top 100 DJs campaign, DJ Mag once again held Virtual Festivals every Saturday and Sunday during the voting period. The streams — which included sets from David Guetta, KSHMR, Timmy Trumpet and Miss K8 — racked up well over 5.7 million views in total.

The Top 100 DJs results were announced live on stage at the Top 100 DJs Awards, presented by AMF, which took place at Amsterdam’s AFAS Live. Guests at the event — and the millions watching the live stream around the world — were treated to performances from Afrojack, Alan Walker, Armin van Buuren (Highest Trance DJ), Avalan, Christina Novelli, Don Diablo (Highest Future House DJ), Carnage/GORDO (Highest Returning DJ), Mariana BO, MORTEN (Highest New Entry), Oliver Heldens and W&W.

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected a lot of elements of the international electronic dance music scene, but it doesn’t seem to have dented the enthusiasm of dance music fans — an incredible 1.3 million people voted in the Top 100 DJs poll this year, matching last year’s total, cementing Top 100 DJs position as the biggest music poll in the world.

Most voters in this year’s Top 100 DJs came from prime clubbing age ranges, with 40% of votes coming from 18-24-year-olds and 40% from the 25-34 age range. However, with clubs and festivals still closed or cancelled for most of the year, a lot of participants in the poll clearly based their votes on live-streamed sets or past favourites.
