Launched in 2006, the three-month-long “America’s Best DJ” competition asks music fans to cast a vote for their favorite DJ from a list of 100 nominees (as selected by the editors of DJ Times magazine). By voting online at the America’s Best DJ Website, you’ll also have the chance to win prizes from Pioneer DJ and DJ Times.
Running concurrently with the competition, America’s Best DJ Summer Tour Presented by Pioneer DJ & DJ Times (also co-sponsored by Las Vegas’ Marquee Nightclub) gives fans a chance to engage and vote in-person. At more than 20 summer-event dates, DJ Times will maintain a dedicated exhibit booth and take paper-ballot votes from fans supporting their favorite U.S.-based DJs. This past Memorial Day weekend, the tour kicked off at Movement, Detroit’s electronic music festival. The three-day event at Motown’s Hart Plaza drew nearly 100,000 fans and once again offered a massive platform for the promotion’s launch.
One lucky voter (plus a guest) will win a grand-prize trip for two to Las Vegas that includes roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations, and VIP treatment at the America’s Best DJ Closing Party/Award Ceremony at Marquee Nightclub on October 13. Note: Both the online vote and tour runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The grand-prize drawing will be held September 2.
