Reddit Releases Their 2017 Top 100 DJs Ranking

Every year hundreds of lists are released with comprehensive rankings of the top 100 DJs from across the globe. Some of them are voted on, some of them are are meticulously curated by music “professionals”, and some of them are slapped together by a carefully selected handful of industry snobs. And of course, with each list comes a spewing of hate comments and controversy. Now, the people of the Reddit community r/EDM have decided to take matters into their own hands.

For the past two years the community has asked users to submit their own votes for their top DJs, then the votes are compiled to complete the full list of 100. Coincidentally, the #1 on the Reddit edition of the list is the same as the #1 on DJMag’s annual (and usually contentious) list, Martin Garrix. However, on Reddit’s list Illenium and Porter Robinson round out the top three, who have both had monumentally successful years. It’s pretty undeniable that the Shelter tour was HUGE and we have a pretty good feeling Illenium’s upcoming release Awake and the accompanying headlining tour are going to be his biggest and best to date.

Over 1,000 different names  and 2,150 votes were thrown into the mix to create the final list of the top 100, which you can check out below:
