Armin van Buuren is celebrating his 20th consecutive year in the top 5 of the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll.
As of last night (13th October), the Dutch trance legend has been in th top 5 for two decades, having landed the No.3 spot once again in the 2021 edition. David Guetta once again took the No.1 spot, while fellow Dutch DJ Martin Garrix came in at No.2.
Armin also played a set at the Top 100 DJs awards party in Amsterdam, alongside Don Diablo, Morten, Marianna Bo and more.
In a statement about his achievement, Armin said: “I really can’t describe how grateful I am to once again be among the top 5 best DJs in the world. And #3 again too! The past year and a half has been a challenge for everyone, but since I was still able to release music and connect with my fans around the world via A State Of Trance radio show, it became a lot easier.”
He continued: ”This past time has proven how strong the A State Of Trance family and bond of all dance music lovers really is and that music conquers all. I have loved working on many different songs with many different artists and I hope you loved listening to the tracks. We didn’t celebrate ASOT 1000 together yet, but we will soon. We can hopefully see each other soon on the dance floor, but for now, thank you so much for voting and take care! And huge congrats to David Guetta and Martin Garrix, the numbers 1 and 2!”
Armin has taken the No.1 spot five times over the years, holding the position for four years in a row between 2007 and 2010.
