EDM Twitter Reacts to DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2020 List

In 2020, DJ Mag‘s Top 100 DJs announcement couldn’t have come at a worse time. Just as EDM Twitter exploded with excitement for President-Elect Joe Biden’s victory yesterday, the annual list’s rollout began, getting lost in the shuffle.

While the Top 100 DJs list experienced some pivotal changes this year — including more women than ever, new entries galore, and significant movement within the Top 10 — most DJs on our timeline didn’t seem to care. Perhaps that can be contributed to the poor or simply unlucky timing, but maybe there’s something more to it all.

While the new reigning No. 1 DJ David Guetta and many of those honored on the list expressed excitement and gratitude, others like Jauz, Illenium (who made the list, mind you), Deorro, Chris LorenzoHabstrakt, Luca Lush and more weighed in with some banter.

Most of these tweets, whether meant to be taken seriously or not, challenge the list’s integrity and question why it’s even still a thing. That by no means devalues the accomplishments those in the Top 100 DJs have achieved, but the commentary is interesting to say the least.

Reporting from Your EDM’s perspective, every year the list has garnered its own share of “WHO CARES?!” comments, but this year the remarks hit different.
