EDM Dominates House and Techno in Top 100 DJs Poll 2018 – Full List

martin garrix dj mag top 100 poll

Dutch EDM DJ/producer Martin Garrix has taken the top spot for the third year in a row in the Top 100 DJs Poll 2018. Garrix was named the number-one DJ in the world at a sold-out event held last night at Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam. Hooray? Swedish artist Avicii, who committed suicide on April 20, 2018, placed 15th on the annual poll.

Aside from a smattering of entries from techno artists Carl Cox [#53], Adam Beyer [#79], Marco Carola [#86], and Nina Kraviz [#97], EDM reigned supreme in 2018.

Where the 2017 poll saw house and techno DJs dominate — a result that moved in tandem with major U.S. electronic-music festivals like Ultra Music Festival and Electric Zoo shifting their programming away from electro — the 25th anniversary poll sees the pendulum swinging back.

According to DJ mag, 1.2 million verified votes were received — an increase of nearly 200,000 from 2017 — from 179 countries. See the full list of DJs below.
