Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Take No. 1 Spot on Top 100 DJs Poll

The Belgian brothers dethroned Martin Garrix on the respected DJ Magazine list.

The duo of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike top DJ Mag’s 2019 Top 100 DJs poll, returning to the list since taking the No. 1 spot in 2015 and dethroning Martin Garrix after three years of dominance.

The results of the Top 100 DJs were arrived at from 1.3 million votes cast in 179 countries. The Belgian brothers received the award during Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) in front of 40,000 fans at the Johan Cruijff arena.

Said Dimitri & Mike following the award presentation: “Winning this back in 2015 was incredible, truly mesmerizing, but this time around it means so much more because as artists, as a family, as a scene, we’ve grown so much and the journey since the last time we were here has taken us on to bigger and bolder projects. Having the fans with us every step of the way is amazing, so to once again be voted by them as their World No.1 DJs means everything to us!”

Martin Carvell, managing director of the UK-based DJ Magazine founded in 1991, remarked that it’s “a fascinating poll this year, with a new No.1, lots of movement in the top ten, and more house and techno DJs in the Top 100 than for many years. The poll itself demonstrates that the global scene is still in rude health, and the international feel of it is stronger than ever.” The poll is aligned with UNICEF, and has raised over 112,000 GBP providing 150,000 lifesaving vaccinations to children in troubled areas.

Other noteworthy positions in the Top 100 DJs poll include: David Guetta jumps up two spots to No. 3; Armin van Buuren sits in fourth (his 18th consecutive year inside the top five); and Marshmello climbs to No. 5 from 10. Others in the top 10 include Don Diablo, Tiësto, Afrojack and Steve Aoki. Hitmaker Calvin Harris lands at 19; Skrillex at 21; the Chainsmokers at 26; Swedish House Mafia at 42; Zedd at 50; and Kygo at 52. The highest placing female act is NERVO at No.24.
