It’s Time to Vote for America’s Best DJ!

America’s Best DJ Voting Site Goes Live, Pioneer DJ-Presented Tour Launches!
 
Port Washington, NY — From the legends to the rising stars, techno to trap, turntablists to laptop maestros (and everything in between), there’s a whole lot that DJs and dance music have to offer these days. So let’s get down to business and bring it all to a vote – WHO IS AMERICA’S BEST DJ?
 
Launched in 2006, the three-month-long “America’s Best DJ” competition asks music fans to cast a vote for their favorite DJ from a list of 100 nominees (as selected by the editors of DJ Times magazine). By voting online at the America’s Best DJ Website, not only will your favorite DJ come that much closer to winning, but you’ll also have the chance to win awesome prizes from Pioneer DJ and DJ Times.
 
Running concurrently with the competition, America’s Best DJ Summer Tour Presented by Pioneer DJ & DJ Times (also co-sponsored by Las Vegas’ Marquee Nightclub) gives fans a chance to engage and vote in-person. At more than 20 summer-event dates, DJ Times will maintain a dedicated exhibit booth and take paper-ballot votes from fans supporting their favorite U.S.-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.
 
One lucky voter (plus a guest) will win a grand-prize trip for two to Las Vegas that includes roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations, and VIP treatment at the America’s Best DJ Closing Party/Award Ceremony at Marquee Nightclub on October 13. Note: Both the online vote and tour runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The grand-prize drawing will be held September 2.
 
Also, fans who Like the America’s Best DJ Facebook page and Follow America’s Best DJ on Twitter are automatically entered to win gear prizes from Pioneer DJ (a DJM-250 mixer & 4 sets of HDJ-2000K headphones) and DJ Times (10 year-long subscriptions).
 
It’s truly an unpredictable race to the finish with past winners reflecting different interpretations of the DJ craft—the past four America’s Best DJ winners were Z-Trip (2009), DJ QBert (2010), Kaskade (2011) and Markus Schulz (2012). Get out and vote for your favorite DJ and help that jock take home the gold-plated Pioneer DJM-900nexus mixer that signifies America’s Best DJ 2013!
