Billboard Is Launching Its Own Top 100 DJ Ranking Poll To Compete With DJ Mag

With a majority of dance music fans unsatisfied with DJ Mag‘s annual Top 100 DJ rankings, Billboard has stepped in and announced its own brand new data-driven artist rankings with ‘Billboard Dance 100′. 

Compiled by Billboard’s editorial and chart departments, the rankings will be weighed by chart statistics (streaming, track sales, album sales and radio airplay) alongside touring data (show capacities, festival bookings and residencies) and a fan-voted poll.

Speaking about the rankings, Billboard’s Director of Dance and Electronic Programming, Matt Medved, says:

The Billboard Dance 100 fills the need for a holistic, data-driven ranking of dance music’s diverse range of talents. From pop hit makers and club curators to hard ticket-movers, all successful artist models will find a home here.

The final Billboard Dance 100 list will be revealed on March 21-22 during the Miami Music, and you can vote for your favourite acts here.
