Ok so its not a festival but we thought as seasoned music fans this is an event you would not want to miss. DJMag Top 100 Dj awards, see what the organisers have to say about this truly spectacular event.
After an unprecedented voting period that saw Top 100 DJs receive over half a million votes from 235 different countries, it’s nearly time to announce 2010’s World Number One DJ! The definitive DJ poll has once again proved itself as the only poll that counts, and with this year’s epic voting figures in mind we thought 2010 deserved TWO massive awards parties…
September 2010, DJmag Top 100 DJs spans nearly two months and culminates in 2 huge events this year, both taking place on the 27th October.
Also, to ensure neither party misses out on a set from the newly crowned World’s Number 1 DJ, we have chartered a helicopter to transport the winner from London to Manchester in time for the final set at Sankeys!
Legendary DJ Boy George will be on hand to present the awards between 11:30pm and midnight at London’s Ministry of Sound, whilst DJs the likes of Sasha, Deadmau5 (unhooked), Afrojack, Fedde Le Grand, Laidback Luke, Jerome Isma-ae and Eddie Halliwell entertain the sellout crowd.
We have partnered up with web TV community b@TV - THE destination for live and on demand coverage of the hottest summer festivals, club nights and VIP events. Through innovative technology, the entire party will be streamed live, in HD, at www.be-at.tv to music fans at home all over the world and the waiting crowd at the recently voted World’s Number One Club, Sankeys!
Completing the Manchester line-up, Gareth Emery, Ferry Corsten and Mat Zo will be smashing it out before the winner touches down to round off proceedings, whilst Sankeys residents Greg Vickers, OD Muzique and Ellesse complete the night’s musical showcase in the intimate upstairs room, Spektrum.
So with undeniably the hugest line-up of the year, cross country celebrations and a bona-fide legend presenting the worthy DJ’s accolades, DJmag Top 100 DJs look set to cause bigger roadblocks than ever next month… Entry is strictly first come first served, don’t forget to get down there early!
A 100% public vote, the final DJmag Top 100 DJs list is decided by dedicated dance music fans from over 230 countries! Last year over 350,000 votes were cast, and as viral campaigns become even more imaginative
we predict that number to rise significantly in 2010.
Votes can be cast NOW at www.top100djs.net With voting open to the public from the 28th July until the 23rd
