Billboard is proud to announce the Billboard Dance 100, a brand new data-driven artist ranking that will give fans and industry members alike a credible and comprehensive look at the power and influence of electronic dance music's biggest names. It marks Billboard's largest expansion into the electronic dance sphere since launching the Billboard Dance vertical in 2015.

The Billboard Dance 100 will be compiled by Billboard's editorial and chart departments, weighing chart statistics (streaming, track sales, album sales and radio airplay) alongside touring data (show capacities, festival bookings and residencies) and a fan-voted poll.

From today (Feb. 26) through March 16, everyone can vote for their five favorite dance artists in a poll here. Participants may only vote once, and any voting irregularities will be disqualified.

"The Billboard Dance 100 fills the need for a holistic, data-driven ranking of dance music’s diverse range of talents,” says Matt Medved, Billboard's Director of Dance and Electronic Programming. "From pop hit makers and club curators to hard ticket-movers, all successful artist models will find a home here."

The finalized Billboard Dance 100 list will be revealed online and accompanied by the annual Dance Power Players list between March 21 and 22, during a special Miami Music Week launch event at 1 Hotel South Beach. The launch will coincide with Billboard's Dance issue, which hits shelves Friday, March 23.

Billboard Dance 100 partners include V-MODA, 1 Hotel South Beach, Hakkasan Group, TAO Group and Wynn Las Vegas. To learn more and cast your vote, visit today.
