YES

David guetta is my number 1 fan. I always listen to his music and blimey it was good. Crikey, why is he in number 3? He should be in number 1 because he deserves it. If you disagree, I'm sorry mate. He is number 1 no buts no nothing.

2 DJ Tiesto DJ Tiesto

GREAT SONGS MIX, CREATIVE, GENIUS & 1 OF A KIND.

Initially I liked Tiesto because he was the one when I actually started listening EDM. But today I like him more for his talent rather than for memories I have when I actually started listening to him. And I hate people when they slam other artists because of their own particular favorites, Specially Skrillex & Guetta's fans when they scream HOW COULD TIESTO be number 1? Skrillex can also be slammed. Like, u can say he produces same ass beats always. However, Guetta & Skrillex are also my favorites including Tiesto.

One more thing I would like to tell, if u want to party & dance then u can listen Skrillex & Guetta But if u wanna experience Hallucinations that u have never experienced in your lifetime then take pot, just close your eyes & listen to 'Adagio for Strings'. You may experience that his 'Adagio for strings' is actually one of the best songs of all time.

Meanwhile, the favorites ranking of anyone can't be criticized because it's a matter of personal choice. And ...more - hasandarvish

he is the best DJ in the world and his tracks are very powerful amazing, he also has the ability to improvise very well

At the age of 49, still rocking!

He is best regarded for his work in Electronic Music during the 2010s in which his works have charted among the Top 40 Radio and for his influence ...read more.

BEST DJ EVER! NO DOUBT! He should be higher than ranked fifth! MORE VOTES FOR AVICII! Plus Wake Me Up is an amazing song he did!

One of the greatest musicians of our time, who changed the world with his music, he wasn't afraid to try new things and he didn't feel the need to follow trends, he just did what he thought was right and ended up changing billions of lives. You cannot overstate the importance and influence he had.

Dudes levels changed my life. Avicii should be at least on the top 5.

Why is avicii rank 11? He is the best dj I've ever seen! Listen to levels and you will know!

Do you know what love is? It's scary monsters and nice sprites... Rock n roll...bangarang... Summit oh this song still gives me the chills even after hearing it a thousand times... Make it bun dem is the epitome of cool... There is kill everybody which is so true... So many variations and not one song sounds the same as others... Don't even get me started on the remixes, they are gold... Everything this guy touches turns to gold. Cinema and levels are two such songs... Of course the levels remix wasn't as good as the original song but it was still awesome. This man defines dubstep. On top of that, a very nice person too. Easy choice for number one.

What!
dude you kidding me? DJ Tiesto's such a bore
and Mad Mike Metrovich... Never heard of him
joe hahn... He's such a fat-ass

5 Deadmau5 Deadmau5 Joel Thomas Zimmerman (a.k.a. deadmau5) is a Canadian DJ producer, formerly a web developer, who produces a wide variety of electronic musical genres, such as electro and dubstep, but is best known for popularizing work in the areas of progressive house and electrohouse, along with the genres themselves. ...read more.

I am simply astonished that he is not #1. It just amazes me. The mau5 took electronic music to a whole new level and inspired a whole new generation of DJs (myself included). Tiesto and Guetta don't even BEGIN to compare with the greatest DJ of all time!

Deadmau5 is king. His songs are actual electronic music.

No other djs on this list compares to this musical genius to be honest

6 Calvin Harris Calvin Harris Adam Richard Wiles, known professionally as Calvin Harris, is a Scottish DJ, record producer, singer, songwriter and remixer. He is known for his hit singles like Summer, This Is What You Came For and How Deep Is Love.

He is the greatest DJ of all time. He can play the bass guitar, DJ, and write songs. That is a truly talented person. I can not understand why he is in the lower ten of the list.

He has collaborated with some of the best singers, and has released a lot of UK number ones, he is a legend!

Why is he so low? Calvin is the best! Please listen to his music and vote him up! His really good songs- "you used to hold me, " "feel so close, " "I'm not alone" etc.

Calvin is the best dj. Considering his his latest album, almost every track is a hit... Its very unfair to him being rated so low while he can make high quality music... Something needs to be done about this!

7 Daft Punk Daft Punk Daft Punk is a French electronic music duo consisting of producers Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.

How are they never listed as the most influential DJs ever, if not the most influential electronic artists ever?! Without their albums, NONE OF THESE OTHER GUYS WOULD EXIST. If their albums had not become worldwide, auto tune, synthpop, masked DJs, remixing, popular sampling, electronic house music, etc. would still be unpopular as they were before Daft came around. Daft are the only DJs that are truly unique, timeless, powerful, beautiful, and mind-blowing all into one. The quality of other DJs simply does not compare. Whenever they release an album, it literally changes the trend of the music industry. Most underrated beings on this planet!

Because they are the best Djs in the world

Its honestly a no brainer that daftpunk should be #1 on the list you put them as the headliner of a festival against anyone else and the crowd will overwhelmingly choose daft punk. But they should def do a tour soon just to remind everyone.

how they are not #1 let alone not on the list is beyond my belief. -

9 Hardwell Hardwell Robbert van de Corput, who performs under the stage name Hardwell, is a Dutch big room house and electro house DJ and music producer.

Hardwell rocks

People, Common Hardwell at 37? That is just not fair. How is this even possible when Tiesto is at the top. Almost all tracks bu hardwell are very comparable to those by tiesto and many are even better.

Best DJ ever on earth

HE is the best dj in world and he has the best iconic ringtone that world's best dj have to have, his music is too good that we always want to listen and last but not list he is great man too

10 Zedd Zedd Zedd is a Russian- German DJ known for his hits such as Clarity, Transmission, and Break Free. He is best known for his album True Colors, which has the highest debut on the Billboard 200 for an EDM album (tied with Skrillex's Recess). He is one the the richest EDM artists in the industry.

Zedd is poop I mean pop

What...? Zedd is not at the top 10 list. What is going on here? You People's do not have any knowledge about music. ZEDD is one of the most talented dj beside David Guetta, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Deadmau5, Hardwell, Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Afrojack, Alesso, Swedish House Mafia, Nicky Romero etc. If You Don't Believe me Just listen to his tracks. Listen to Clarity (Featuring Foxes).

What, how could he doesn't come in top 5 ranking, he is totally different from others. Hear he all songs from his latest album 'True color'. He is just great then Tiesto and others in ranking. This is not fair with him. Others who don't support him don't support, but I will support him till I die.

I Think Zedd should be up there in 10. He is so good he made Electro/Techno music to pop mainstream... and people who aren't in this genre can easily listen to this guys music.

16 Paul Van Dyk

The James Cameron of trance music: Paul Van Dyk. He's one of the best DJs in all of trance. Not kidding. You should dance and sing along to some of his tunes.

Paul Van Dyk has got to be in my top FIVE along with the DJs that have been leading the Dj mag Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren.

He is the number 1 no doubt about that, legendary and phenomenal! He has aquired a unique status of undisputed and ever prevailing admirable one!

Simply the best of all time.

Come on peeps! A supergroup like swedish house mafia should not be at 11. They at least deserve to be in the top 5. Don't believe me? - listen to "Don't You Worry Child" & "Save The World".

21 Benny Benassi

I like how he is always providing the base track for other DJs to remix. Without Benny Benassi, awesome remixes like Skrillex's Cinema would never have come to be. I do not think that he is The Best, but he should be given more recognition as an important DJ.

I agreed Benny Benassi is up there today as one of the most important dj's with the likes of David guetta, skrillex to be honest I never was much into techno but that all changed once I heard Cinema (skrillex remix) one of the best songs to grace this world

I Think Benny should be in the top 10 because he is a beast with his hits "Satisfaction" and "I Love My Sex" and he's especially a beast when he's featured in the song "Beautiful People" by Chris Brown and that's What I think! So let's bring Benassi To the Top!

29 Above & Beyond

Above & Beyond is behind Nero, Ken Shelton, and Hahn, let alone 17 other DJ's not named Daft Punk (Who I put at #1... ) This is a joke. They do so much for the EDM community!

On my way to heaven

Exactly. Above and Beyond...at least 3rd or 4th.

40 Kaskade

Why is Kaskade #83? Listen to Last Chance, featuring Project 46, one of his best songs. His peaceful progressive house music, said bike piano, and energetic vibes in the album Fire and Ice, make him one of the best DJs yet! He should be in the top 10 at least.

Kaskade is a pioneer of this age in dance music, I just don't understand how he's ranked 83, he should be In The top ten

Kaskade is the 8th richest DJ in the world, because of his famous songs. He uses styles like Deadmau5, so he should be in the top 10. Listen to Move for me, one of his most popular songs.

The greatest DJ to move a dance floor. He is in Michigan!

50 ATB

Atb should be number 1. He's clowned Tiesto through out their whole careers! And Armins placement is correct.

David guetta should never even be discussed with the top 30 dj's.

Atb is the best what is he doing so low 45?! This guy is awesome he is not all hype like guetta or calvin Harris who sounds like pop. Atb is classic plus more he doesn't drastically change his songs to go along with the fads. This guy should be at least number ten on this list.

He is absolutely #1 DJ of all time! I think it's the list of present time.

Atb must be number 1
