Billboard has just announced the first-ever Billboard Dance 100 list, a comprehensive ranking of the top 100 dance and electronic music artists in the world. The list will be compiled by Billboard’s editorial and charts departments, who will be informed by three components: charts statistics (streaming, track sales, album sales, and radio airplay), touring data (show capacities, festival bookings, and residencies), and a fan-voted poll.

The final list will be revealed between March 21-22 during Miami Music Week. This new franchise is one of Billboard’s largest endeavors since launching the Billboard Dance vertical in 2015. In a time when the dance music industry is taking off, and crossing over into other genres, Billboard aims to keep up by providing a credible resource for the scene while giving fans a voice in the process. “The Billboard Dance 100 fills the need for a holistic, data-driven ranking of dance music’s diverse range of talents,” Matt Medved, the Director of Dance and Electronic Programming at Billboard said. “For pop hitmakers and club curators to hard ticket-movers, all successful artist models will find a home here.”
Fans can vote for their five favorite dance/electronic artists now up through March 16 by clicking this link. To maintain authenticity, each user will get only one vote and any irregularities will be disqualified.
