In-demand Dutch progressive and electro-house specialist Hardwell has taken the crown as the world’s No. 1 DJ, according to a poll conducted by clubbing and electronic music title DJ Mag.
Hardwell (real name Robbert van de Corput) beat out countryman and trance veteran Armin Van Buuren -- a five-time winner of the accolade -- to take victory in what is the 20th year DJ Mag has published its annual Top 100 DJs poll.
Rounding out the top five are Sweden’s Avicii, Dutchman Tiësto and Frenchman David Guetta. He might have missed out on the big prize, but Tiësto did claim the inaugural Top 100 DJs Legend Award.
