Garrix, who takes the coveted top spot from 2015 winners, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, was awarded the No.1 trophy by his mentor, Tiësto, on stage at the Top 100 DJs poll award ceremony at the Heineken Music Hall. The event was the opening party in this year’s AMF Festival, the largest of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).
The award caps a meteoric rise for Garrix over the past few years — ever since ‘Animals’ shot to No.1 around the world in 2013. He was odds-on favourite to win in 2016, after coming third in 2015.
On receiving the award, Martin Garrix said, “It feels unreal to have won. I 100 percent did not expect it at all. I’ve had an amazing year, with awesome shows and amazing fans — I’m so thankful for their support. It just shows how dope the fan-base is.” Martin Said.
