Vote For Pioneer DJ & DJ Times’ America’s Best DJ Competition & Summer Tour


Pioneer DJ and DJ Times have partnered up for an eighth straight year to allow fans to choose the title of America’s Best DJ.

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?

Launched in 2006, “America’s Best DJ” competition runs over the course of three months and asks music fans to cast votes for their favorite US-based DJ. You can select from a list of 100 nominees (as selected by the editors ofDJ Times magazine), sorry in advance if your favorites didn’t make this year’s list. By voting online at the America’s Best DJ website, you can help your favorite DJ come closer to winning, and 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.

Running alongside the competition, America’s Best DJ Summer Tour Presented by Pioneer DJ &DJ Times gives fans a chance to engage and vote in-person. At more than 15 summer-event dates, DJ Times will maintain a dedicated exhibit booth and take paper-ballot votes from fans supporting their favorite US-based DJs. This past Memorial Day weekend, the tour kicked off at Movement, Detroit’s electronic music festival. The three-day event at Motown’s Hart Plaza drew nearly 100,000 fans and once again offered a massive platform for the promotion’s launch.

America's Best DJ, Pioneer, Vote, Tour

Vote & Win: One lucky voter (plus a guest) will win a grand-prize trip for two to Las Vegas that includes round trip 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.

Also, fans who ‘like’ the America’s Best DJ Facebook Page and ‘follow’ America’s Best DJ on Twitter are automatically entered to win monthly prizes like Pioneer DJ gear and watches from G-Shock.

In an industry with talented producers of all genres, it’s truly an unpredictable race to the finish. 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).

Get out and vote for your favorite DJ and help that jock take home the gold-plated Pioneer DJM-900 nexus mixer that signifies America’s Best DJ 2014!
