And the winners in…
After scooping the top title for the last 3 years, AVB has smashed the Top 100 DJs poll yet again and heads up a top 5 that looks like this…
1. Armin Van Buuren
2. David Guetta
5. Above and Beyond
After a roadblocker of an awards party on Wednesday (which saw avid fans queuing from 4pm!) it’s fair to say the Top 100 DJs holds just as much weight as ever! With a line-up that boasted Sasha, deadmau5, Fedde le Grand, Laidback Luke, Eddie Halliwell, Afrojack and Jerome Isma-ae, the party kept rocking until 4am. Superstar DJs, an unbelievable crowd and far too many drinks to mention made sure the poll closed with a bang and we can’t thank you all enough for your votes and effortless raving!
There were countless new entries in the poll this year and too much movement to possibly mention. Though the top 10 remain similar, the back end of the poll shows up countless new entries and climbers. Check out our awards host Boy George, smashing into the poll at number 80, Russian duo Moonbeam climbing a massive 34 places and drum & bass legend Andy C going up a huge 39 places to take this year’s 61! It just goes to show how much the scene develops over 12 months, and how the public’s taste grows and develops endlessly…
So, who do you rate in the poll? Who should have placed higher? And lower?? As always, Top 100 DJs 2011 is 100% down to you, so keep your eyes and ears wide open for the next year and make sure YOUR favourite DJs rank in the place they deserve!
Congratulations to all DJs who made the Top 100 DJs, many thanks for your continued support and here’s to yet another incredible, boundary breaking and innovative year in dance music!
