Tiesto is Number 1 DJ in the World... Again!

For yet another year the Dutch trance master Tiesto has been voted as the worlds favourite DJ in the annual DJ Mag global poll, voted on by over 90,000 dance music fans from around the world. The DJ Mag awards have become the most recognised and acclaimed out of all such awards established to honour men behind the wheels of steel and unlike many other awards the DJ Mag ones are voted for solely by the fans themselves.

The increasing prestige of the awards over recent years has seen a marked increase in PR campaigns by the DJ's involved with countless emails and banners trying to convince fans to vote for their favourite DJ.

But it was Dutchman Tiesto who was crowned again at the awards ceremony at the SE1 club in London although he unfortunately pulled out of night at the last minute as was not able to be present to collect his award.

It's no real surprise that he was number 1 again though. In a year that saw him play at the opening ceremony of the Olympic games as well as performing sell out shows in New York's Central Park, Miami and an upcoming event in Holland he was the natural and probably most obvious choice for first place.

With Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, and Oakenfold joining him in the top 10 its clear that trance still maintains it's hold on the minds of the most global dance music fans.
