DJ Mag Originals releases a full-length documentary charting 30 years of Top 100 DJs. Get in-depth insight into the 30-year history of the Top 100 DJs poll, through stories from David Guetta, Carl Cox, Charlotte de Witte, Smokin Jo, DJ Paulette, Martin Garrix, Hardwell, and many more.

The DJ Mag Original documentary gives an exclusive insight into the world’s biggest music poll, as told by some of electronic music’s best-known artists. Top 100 DJs: The World’s Biggest Music Poll follows the poll from its humble beginnings in the ’90s as a postal vote, through to becoming the global phenomenon it is today.

“To mark the 30th anniversary of Top 100 DJs, we wanted to capture this trajectory — in an honest and open way — alongside the sounds, scenes and artists the poll has reflected along the way. The team have worked tirelessly to bring this — our first long-form DJ Mag Original documentary — to fruition, and we’re incredibly excited to put this out into the world.”
