DJ Magazine elects Martin Garrix as the world’s best DJ
Martin Garrix has been named as the world’s best DJ by the prestigious DJ Magazine. The 20-year-old Dutch producer topped the annual poll after one million votes were cast.
Last year Garrix had finished at No. 3 in the Magazine’s poll but this time the DJ succeeded in earning the top of the list. There are no women in the poll’s Top 40, since we find only at No. 45 the Australian female duo Nervo.
Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike (winners of this poll in 2015) arrive at No. 2, followed by Dutch electro house DJ Hardwell.
Martin Garrix is the youngest ever winner. ‘It feels unreal to have won,’ he said. ‘I 100 per cent did not expect it at all. I’ve had an amazing year, with awesome shows and amazing fans’.
Here is DJ Magazine’s top ten of the world’s best DJs:
1. Martin Garrix
2. Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike
4. Armin Van Buuren
6. David Guetta
7. Steve Aoki
8. Oliver Heldens
