DJ Mag's 2014 Top 100 DJ's Released

Rebecca PotznerComment

Whether you agree with the rankings or not, the DJ Mag Top 100 for 2014 has been announced. Up until it's release, we were bombarded with posts about an alleged leak and a list of the worst DJ's.  Hardwell reigned in at number one for the second consecutive year, some new entries ranked pretty well, and some artists you may be surprised not to find. 


While some artists have shown their gratitude, others have shown that they could care less about ranking.  We're kind of in the middle. We congratulate those artists who made the list, but in the end it's really just an amped up popularity contest, yeah? We'd rather just focus on the music. Feel free to check out the list below and leave us your thoughts!
