The results for 2020’s Top 100 DJs poll have been announced
David Guetta has won this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll. He returns to the top spot for the first time since 2011
“When I won the first time, I was like ‘OK, if I go to Google search and my name is ten times higher, it should have happened’,” he said. “It’s funny because ten years ago when I won, all the trance fans were so mad against me because it was the first time that trance wasn’t winning — for years. It was the beginning of that EDM era in the festivals.”
Guetta reckons his new collab has the solution: “We have created that new, sexy rave sound that is the answer to this problem.”
Former Top 100 DJs poll No.1, one of dance music’s unquestionably biggest stars, and with a career that’s spanned over three decades, Guetta’s influence on dance music means different things to different people. For some he’s the antithesis of what the industry represents, for others he’s the pinnacle. Having been a mainstay in the top ten since 2007, it’s clear Guetta’s appeal isn’t waning any time soon.
As every year the controversial ranking of artists is revealed in which (almost) nobody is satisfied with the results. This 2020 the results of the Top 100 Dj Mag will also be accompanied by the celebration of Amsterdam Music Festival , where the city will become a great dance floor. Artists such as Afrojack, Nicky Romero, David Guetta, Don Diablo or Armin van Buuren will perform in different locations.
