LESS THAN ONE WEEK LEFT TO VOTE IN THE TOP 100 DJS POLL 2015
There is less than one week left until voting closes for DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs Poll 2015 powered by 7UP: www.djmag.com/top100djs. All votes must be cast for the world’s biggest annual music poll by 11.59pm (UK) on 14 September.
The final days of voting for the Top 100 DJs Poll form the second busiest period after the opening week, and voting figures for 2015 are on course to exceed 2014’s record turnout, which saw over 900,000 votes from over 200 countries. Dutch star, Hardwell, retained the No.1 spot for the second year, and performed a headline set at the Top 100 DJs Poll events in Amsterdam and London. Showing the strength and diversity of the global electronic music scene, there were 24 new entries in last year’s Poll, with a total of 30,000 DJs voted for; DJ Mag expects increases in both areas in 2015.
For the third year in a row, the Top 100 DJs Poll Awards powered by 7UP will be held on 16 October at the two-day Amsterdam Music Festival (AMF); returning for the second time to Amsterdam ArenA, the stadium for Ajax football club. The line-up for the event will be announced soon. The following day on 17th October, DJ Mag in association with Lock N Load Events, will takeover London’s prestigious Brixton Academy to host the UK’s only Top 100 DJs Party featuring headline sets from the world’s biggest DJs. The line-up will include this year’s newly crowned No.1 DJ alongside Aly & Fila, R3hab Ferry Corsten, NERVO, Markus Schulz, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, W & W, and many more. Please note that after the 2014 event sold out with weeks to go, the last few tickets are on sale now for this year’s show, and are expected to sell out very soon.
Those who can’t make the UK or Holland show will be able watch both events via DJ Mag’s live stream (see youtube.com/djmagtv for further information).
The Poll’s headline sponsor for 2015 is 7UP, who will also be presenting the Next UP Award powered by 7UP, awarded to this year’s highest new entry.
The Top 100 DJs Foundation (registered at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce No.61608947) is the official charity partner of Top 100 DJs. The foundation will be an integral part of Top 100 DJs in 2015, enabling voters to engage in the causes that mean the most to them, and inviting dance music artists, DJs and fans to create a tangible and lasting impact. As part of the voting process, the foundation will ask Top 100 DJs voters the question: ‘What freedom do you feel needs to be accelerated most?’. The results will be revealed during the Top 100 DJs Poll Awards. The multiple-choice answers range from freedom of education through to equal opportunities, equality in relation to gender and sexuality, and freedom of expression.
Top 100 DJs is now a global tour concept, bringing the Top 100 DJs experience to more people than ever before. Large outdoor events in Istanbul, Sofia and Beirut have already taken place this year featuring artists from the poll. More events, in association with Alda Events are planned throughout 2015 and into 2016.
The Top 100 DJs Poll powered by 7UP is a publicly voted poll that inspires fierce debate across the year with speculation on the world’s No.1 DJ, new entries and biggest climbers dominating online discussion and beyond.
