DJ Mag Best of British Awards 2021: votes are now open

0


Nominations have been announced for DJ Mag’s 2021 Best Of British awards.

This year marks the 15th edition of the awards, our annual celebration of British talent. Positioned as a counterweight to the global poll of the top 100 DJs, our Best Of British awards are an opportunity to spotlight local talent who continue to place the UK scene at the forefront of electronic music.

After suspending our usual annual physical awards show due to the impact of the pandemic last year – and hosting a digital version of our Best of British awards – we are returning to the Steel Yard in London on Thursday 16th December for a very special awards ceremony. There will be more lineup news for this next week, but you can buy early bird tickets now. here.

We’ve also revised the awards to welcome the return of our club and festival categories, after a one-year hiatus as they were closed in 2020. We look forward to celebrating the best clubbing and festival spaces in Grande- Brittany as part of the awards.

Votes for the 2021 DJ Mag Best of British Awards are open until November 29. You can check out the full list of categories and nominees below and vote here.
