The DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll powered by 7UP has announced the new winner(s). And they are the Belgian brothers, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, the first duo to win the annual Poll!
The news was given at the Amsterdam Music Festival (AMF), before performing in front of tens of thousands of dance music fans.
Commenting on the award, Dimitri and Mike said: “Thank you so much! Since day one we’ve put every bit of energy and time we can into our music and our shows in order to give the fans the greatest experience any DJ could offer. So it’s such an incredible honor to receive this award knowing it’s from the guys that matter most to us.”
The pair moved from No.6 to No.2 in the 2014 DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll.
During the past year their dominance in the festival scene has been unrivalled, playing Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, Creamfields, and Mysteryland.
All 40,000 tickets for the launch of their ‘Bringing The Madness 3.0’ shows at Belgium’s Sportpaleis Antwerpen sold out in under 40 minutes; a feat previously only managed by U2, Madonna, Beyoncé, and Michael Jackson. The pair has also sold out 3 forthcoming UK shows, including London’s O2 Brixton Academy.
With their debut artist album in the making, the pair’s recent hit with Ummet Ozcan, ‘The Hum’, is joined by current single, ‘Higher Place’, featuring Grammy award winner Ne-Yo, the track that’s further shown their crossover status. It spent 6 weeks at the No.1 spot in the Belgian Charts, amassed views in excess of 7 million, and was one of the most worldwide Shazamed tracks at this year’s festivals.
For the third consecutive year, the Top 100 DJs Poll Awards powered by 7UP was held at the two-day Amsterdam Music Festival (AMF); returning for the second time to Amsterdam ArenA, the stadium for Ajax football club.
The Poll’s headline sponsor for 2015 is 7UP, who presented the Next UP Award powered by 7UP, awarded to this year’s highest new entry – at No.23 – KSHMR (pronounced ‘Kashmir’), the Californian producer previously part of hip-hop act the Cataracs. This year’s Poll welcomes 21 new entries, 3 re-entries, and 7 non-movers. Oliver Heldens is the Highest House DJ, up 22 places. Diplo moves into the Top 20, and also places for his Jack U project (with Skrillex).
KSHMR is named in partial homage to his Indian heritage, but somebody who is really opening up the Asian sub-continent is DJ Chetas from Mumbai, India. Mixing up Bollywood sounds with EDM, with nearly a million Facebook likes, he’s helping to open up this new market to the global dance scene.
Nearly 30% of the DJs in the Top 100 DJs Poll – 29, to be exact – are from Holland. The US isn’t too far behind, with a smattering also from Germany, Belgium, Sweden, France, Italy, and the UK. In addition, there are DJs from Russia, Australia, Switzerland, Ukraine, Central America, Malta, Slovenia, Israel, Portugal, Spain, India, Poland, Brazil, Egypt, Moldova and Canada.
Despite having no entrants in the Top 100 DJs Poll last year, drum & bass now has two — Andy C and Netsky. In fact, non-EDM DJs are having something of a revival in the Poll, perhaps reflecting that dance music fans from other styles are re-engaging with the Top 100. Disclosure is one of the highest new entries, while techno maestro Richie Hawtin is up 39 places to No.51. Carl Cox holds steady, Umek is up 5 and Flux Pavilion — who produced a humorous campaigning video this year — is a new entry at No.86.
The list of names outside the Top 100, makes for interesting reading too. Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Marco Carola, Sasha, Paul Kalkbrenner, Loco Dice, Flosstradamus and Fatboy Slim are all in the next 50 – despite not campaigning for votes whatsoever.

As we already wrote, two days ago were celebrated at Pacha Ibiza the 18th edition of Dj Awards!
Solomun won for the category Deep House, Cuartero as Newcomer, Luciano and Hot Since 82 won the category Tech house, Hardwell won the categories Electro/progressive house & International dj, Armin Van Buuren for trance music, “The King” Carl Cox for Techno, and scored awards also Black Coffee, Hannah Wants and Disclosure! We are also happy because of “Acid Sundays”, a party that we loved and we reviewed several times, won a special prize as Ibiza night.
So, compliments to all the winners and to the organizers, and see you at Dj Awards 2016!
This is a picture of the winners!
Here you have the official poster with the complete list of winners!
It’s July, and for ‘Ibiza by night’ it’s time for the first report about Ibiza 2015’s best parties!
During the month of June there are many important parties that haven’t started yet, so our report is only based on current events.
The big news of Summer 2015 is the free parties, basically at ‘No name’, ‘Beachouse’ and in several other places (see related article), but now we focus on the clubs.
Let’s start from Monday: Circoloco at Dc-10 is the unmissable party that starts during the day…At night at Amnesia, Cocoon with Sven Väth and his team is scoring excellent results. At Pacha there is big news first: Steve Aoki moved to Monday night, and his show had really good results.
Tuesday? Flower Power had good performances at Pacha, and also Together at Amnesia (who are hosting Defected in the House) is going great. Hardwell’s Carnival every Tuesday at Ushuaia is a fantastic party for the lovers of his music! At Sankeys, the Tribal sessions are still an appointment to make if you love good music!
Wednesday? During the day was interesting – “LA Familia” with Joris Voorn & Nick Fanciulli are at Ushuaia. At night, the going gets tough with Hyte at Amnesia (with Loco Dice, Maceo Plex and Chriìs Liebing). At No Name Ibiza tINI and the gang are back with excellent parties.
Thursday: David Guetta carries on being “King Midas” at Pacha. The French DJ and producer is still the no.1, for lovers of commercial music.
Friday: There is no doubt, the two parties are Music On and SupermartXe. Two very different events. Music on with the Master Marco Carola and Joseph Capriati is the temple of pure techno, SupermartXè is one of the best commercial parties on the Island.
Saturday? During the day Ants at Ushuaia Ibiza are back, for the third season: Ants means happiness, good music and a great party, with Andrea Oliva as main guest.
After the day, the night has just one leader: Bob Sinclar. Sinclar, main guest of “Pure Pacha” won the competition with all other clubs, but also Kehakuma + El Row are going great at Space Ibiza.
Sunday: During the day Blue Marlin beats all the competitors: the beach club of Cala Jondal still presents the best daytime party!
But, during the night, Sunday is the moment of Luciano who returned successfully with his Vagabundos at Space Ibiza.
Pacha Ibiza answered this with Solomun+1, who has for the last three years has made it a great night! La Troya, one of the cult events on the Island, has moved to Sunday night at Amnesia, still with its transgressive parties!
Still on Sunday, but only until midnight, the coolest party has been “Rumors” at Beachouse: Guy Gerber is leading the most entertaining free party on the Island, it’s unmissable.
But, don’t forget, during July many other top parties will start: Enter, every Thursday at Space Ibiza, Paradise with Jamie Jones is on every Wednesday at DC-10, and, starting from 7th July, every Tuesday, “The King” Carl Cox will be back at Space Ibiza. Armin Van Buuren is guest DJ every Thursday at Ushuaia, David Guetta every Monday at Ushuaia, plus the top free parties at No name Ibiza.
So lots more to report on at the end of the month!
