Voting opens at 12.30am BST tomorrow, Sunday 13 July for DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs Poll. 2013’s edition saw a new winner in the form of Dutchman, Hardwell; the Dutch DJ/producer replaced five-times No.1 Armin van Buuren. At 25 years old, Hardwell became the Poll’s youngest ever winner and last year’s Poll apparently received votes from over 750,000 people and from more than 200 countries.
Tomorrow’s poll launch will be celebrated with a party tonight at Amsterdam’s Paradiso, featuring a mystery guest DJ, alongside 2013’s highest climber, Andrew Rayel, Dannic, Dubvision and 2013’s highest new entry, Dyro.
The Top 100 DJs Poll Awards will be held during the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) on Saturday 18 October and will take place at the Amsterdam Music Festival. The presentation partner for the awards is KLM – ‘carrier of the world’s best DJs’. The level and scale of the Top 100 DJs Poll in 2014 is neatly conveyed by the choice of venue for this year’s event – The Amsterdam ArenA. The stadium for Ajax football club will welcome thousands of fans to ADE’s biggest dance event.
