Next Top 100 Chinese DJs?
The annual polling for DJ Mag Top 100 DJs has officially started again! This is the time of year DJs start eagerly promoting themselves. What’s different about this year’s polling is that DJ Mag has opened up Weibo log in for Chinese voters. This act proves to the world that DJ Mag values the development of electronic music culture in China.
The final list will be announced during the Amsterdam Music Festival in October. In this year, you will not only see the familiar headliner DJs but also some local Chinese DJs.
