The verdict is out!

This year’s Top 100 DJs was revealed at the AMF Festival, the largest of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), and Martin Garrix was awarded the #1 title by his mentor, Tiësto. The win was a truly historic one, capping the 20-year-old EDM superstar’s high-profile career and effectively making him the youngest ever world #1 DJ.

Upon receiving the award, the “Animals” hitmaker said, “It feels unreal to have won. I 100% did not expect it at all. I’ve had an amazing year, with awesome shows and amazing fans — I’m so thankful for their support. It just shows how dope the fan-base is.”

This year’s poll also saw more than a million votes for the first time ever, from almost every country on the planet, as the voting platform was opened up to more territories. Interestingly, voters in China, the land of the Great Firewall, were able to use Weibo – one of China’s biggest social media platforms – to vote.

Other notable winners on the list include non-movers Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, David Guetta, Skrillex, and R3HAB, as well as new entries marshmello, Alan Walker (read: Faded), and more.
