Markus Schulz provided a fantastic recap of his recent shows in NYC, South America, and EDC in his latest blog post on Facebook. But what was equally as fascinating is to read the perspective of a superstar DJ on his thoughts behind the importance of the DJ Mag Poll:
For the DJs themselves, it is an unbelievably stressful time of the year, especially because it is coupled in with the busiest stretch of gigs due to Ibiza and the summer festivals. Booking agencies and promoters will continually go back and forth for every major festival or arena event all year long, fighting for which DJ gets to play the main stage, who gets the best timeslots or who gets billed above whom; and they primarily use the results of the DJ Mag poll each year as leverage.
So maybe it might be a good idea to reflect on your vote this year because a lot of these DJs depend on it.
