Hardwell Takes The #1 Spot On DJ Mag Poll
Hardwell & Dyro feat. Heather Bright - Never Say Goodbye (Original Mix) [Revealed]
Armin Van Buuren feat. Trevor Guthrie - This Is What It Feels Like (Extended Mix) [Armind]
Avicii feat. Aloe Blacc - Wake Me Up (Extended Mix)

Every year people around the world vote for their favorite artists in DJ Mag‘s Top 100 DJs Poll, and it’s always interesting to see how it turns out every year when the rankings are announced during the Amsterdam Dance Event.

Joyful host of the evening Giorgio Moroder presented several surprises to the world at tonight’s announcement event. Perhaps the biggest one was seeing Hardwell take the crown at the #1 spot, though many had predicted this in the weeks leading up to the event. He’s the youngest DJ to ever receive the award, which was handed to him by five-time winner and newly ranked #2 DJ Armin van Buuren, who exclaimed his joy to be awarding a fellow Dutchman.

In other notable news, Avicii took the #3 from Tiesto. However, Tijs Verwest did make a score by earning the well deserved Top 100 DJ Legend award. TomorrowLand stars Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike broke into the top 10 at #6. Deadmau5, who doesn’t consider himself a DJ and mocks the poll yearly, is likely pleased to see that he’s no longer in the top 10. The highest scoring new entry was Dyro, who came in at position 30.
