From disc-scratching icons to basement producers in the fast lane, America’s dance-music explosion has birthed some of the most talented artists in the game. But let’s skip the politics and bring it all to a vote – WHO IS AMERICA’S BEST DJ?

The three-month-long “America’s Best DJ” competition asks music fans to cast a vote for their favorite US-based DJ from a list of 100 nominees (as selected by the editors of DJ Times magazine). By voting online at the America’s Best DJ website, not only will your favorite DJ come that much closer to winning, but you’ll also have the chance to win awesome prizes from Pioneer DJ, DJ Times and additional sponsors G-Shock and Las Vegas’ Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub.

Vote & Win: One lucky voter (plus a guest) will win a grand-prize trip for two to Las Vegas that includes roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations, and VIP treatment at the America’s Best DJ Closing Party/Award Ceremony at Marquee Nightclub on October 12. (Note: Both the online vote and tour run from Memorial Day to Labor Day). The grand-prize drawing will take place on September 4.

We encourage everyone to go out there and vote ASAP!

Past winners have certainly reflected different interpretations of the DJ craft including Z-Trip (2009), DJ QBert (2010), Markus Schulz (2012), and Kaskade (2011 & 2013).
