Billboard Dance just unleashed its 100 Artists of 2019 and it’s 100% stacked from top to bottom.


Marshmello reigns at the #1 spot. He’s followed by Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers, Zedd, and Kygo rounding out the top 5. Martin Garrix, DiploTiësto, DJ Snake and David Guetta fill out the top 10. The list also includes Skrillex, Flume, deadmau5, Illenium, and many more.

The publication took into account nearly a quarter of a million votes from 174 countries and all 7 continents. That, stats from domestic and global charts including streaming, track sales, album sales, and radio airplay, plus touring data including show capacities, festival bookings, and residencies all went into deciding the Top 100.

Charting on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs and Top Dance/Electronic Albums served as a general baseline for eligibility. Billboard’s staff also worked to ensure the list remained true to the dance/electronic music community, by considering each artist’s history and context. As a result, the list is pretty comprehensive.

Alison Wonderland, Rezz, and Tokimonsta grace the covers of the special Billboard Dance issue, all of whom made the list. See photos from the new issue here.
