On a more serious note: “Any artist or representative deemed to be deliberately in breach of these rules risks being disqualified from the [DJ Mag top 100 DJs] poll and named publicly.”
In 2015, the Belgium duo and Tomorrowland residents Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike managed to get on top of DJ Mag’s top 100 DJs voting. However, in the aftermath, they received a lot of criticism for using promotion teams with the now famous iPads. For example by Hardwell, who tweeted about it and was consequently left out of the Tomorrowland line-up for two years. The iPad teams were spotted at several festivals and even in Belgium’s public areas, like shopping malls. It is safe to say that the multitude of the EDM fans are familiar with this story and the critics DJ Mag gets regarding the way the top 100 DJs list is compiled. This year’s voting has just been closed, and when I, nonetheless, did an attempt to vote for this year’s list, I came across the amazing ruleset they have created for the usage of such promotion teams. Using ‘iPad peeps’ is permitted, but there are ‘strict guidelines’ to regulate their use. Let’s take a closer look at the developed rules.
- “Artists or organizations wishing to use street teams must register their usage on each occasion. This will involved sharing dates and times of operation, device type, IP addresses, and the location of use.”
This means DJ Mag actually has monitored the iPad peeps in their quest for more votes. Through the IP addresses, it is possible for DJ Mag to see how many votes actually came from the devices that were used by the street teams, which allows them to analyze the influence of such teams on the final results. It would be a great thing to have DJ Mag also publish this analysis, in order for the EDM community to better able to judge the list. The downside of this might be that we will be flooded by iPad peeps at festivals in the coming years when it actually turns out to be helpful. But there is more.
- “The device operative or promotional person must hand over the device to the voter, who must conduct the whole process themselves. It is not permitted for the promotional person to enter in the DJ name themselves, this must be a free vote.”
So whenever a promotion person has approached you to vote for Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike as #1 DJs [to take just a random example], they were not allowed to type in the names for you. They actually had to physically hand over the iPad to you, so you could log into your own Facebook or Google account, and fill in your top 5 completely by yourself. In practice, this means that if someone did not know how to spell the name of their ‘favourite’ DJs, the iPad peeps actually had to spell it out loud instead of filling it in for you. This great feature gave you the possibility to fill in other names into your top 5 and thereby ensure freedom of choice among the voters, and potentially also piss off the hired iPad peeps.
- “The location of the promotion must be deemed relevant to the artist. For the avoidance of doubt: festivals, clubs or events featuring the campaigning DJs are permitted. Shopping centres, streets, schools, universities, colleges or other unrelated high footfall areas are not permitted. If in doubt, please ask.”
This means no more iPad peeps that are stalking you when you are waiting for your morning train to arrive, when you are in line for the local Starbucks, when you are dropping off your children at their kindergarten, or when you are desperately studying for tomorrow’s exam in the university library. Unless……. the DJ in question is giving a guest lecture at your Uni, playing a surprise set at the kindergarten, opening a brand new store in the local shopping mall, or is making a second career as a train driver. Then it obviously is still relevant to the artist in question, and are the iPad peeps more than welcome.
- “DJ Mag will be sending ‘random voters’ to popular events active during the voting process to ensure these rules are adhered to.”
‘Have you always been dreaming of being an undercover agent, but you failed to get into the secret service or police force? Apply here to make your dreams come true as DJ Mag’s next ‘random voter’. Who would not apply for such an amazing job? Even if it is just to have the title ‘random voter’ shine on your LinkedIn page. I sincerely wonder how these people do their job and what situations they got themselves in with the iPad peeps. So when you have been a random voter or you know one that wants to tell their story, drop us a message!
The number of questions about how to implement and enforce these rules in practice is infinite, but DJ Mag appears to be dead serious about it considering their punishment:
So far, no disqualifications from the pole have been made public, but it will be interesting to see what happens when someone does. On the one hand, DJ Mag wants a ‘valid’ pole that provides a proper image of the worldwide popularity of DJs. Therefore they simply had to come up with something of a ruleset to keep the use of iPad peeps within some boundaries. But on the other hand, these teams that are randomly asking people on the street to vote, also have a commercial value for both the poll and DJ Mag as a press outlet. Therefore, it is questionable how and whether these rules are actually being reinforced by DJ Mag themselves, and whether they will be transparent about their analysis towards the use of iPad peeps by DJs in this year’s list. Being transparent will definitely be a good step forward in restoring confidence into the list and its results. This year’s results will be announced during the Amsterdam Dance Event on the 20th of October.

Police chief said it was too big to handle; will Diplo return with a revised application?
According to reports coming out of Brockton, Massachusetts, a reworking of Mad Decent Block Party is underway. The fan favorite festival, created by legendary DJ/producer Diplo, has been around since 2008. In its early years, the show was set to travel across the country and eventually hit international cities. At one point, Mad Decent was stopping at 14 cities nationwide. However, in 2018, they took the party down to one stop only.
The superstar is planning to revive his brainchild in a way only Diplo could. By teaming up with SGE Entertainment (Lost Lands/Moonrise Festival), he will launch The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival.
If approved, the festival is to take place on July 20th-21st at the Brockton Fairgrounds in Massachusetts, with performances beginning around noon and wrapping up by 11:00 PM on both dates. The producer is setting out to create the largest festival the city has ever seen. Rumored artists set to headline are Major Lazer and Billie Eilish.
This large of a venture isn’t coming without some hiccups. The initial application rose safety concerns with 37,000 people expected. Now the city wants it to be scaled back. Commissioner Jeffrey Charnel said the proposed road closures surrounding the fairgrounds could negatively affect local businesses, and Commissioner Paul Merian said the event’s scale is unprecedented in the city.
“It scares the s— out of me,” he said, before telling the festival producer’s team, “The infrastructure you’re setting up sounds great, but it’s an experiment. The city has never seen something this big before.”
Though the initial application has been denied, it is reported Diplo and his team will consider re-applying with a revised proposal. The story is still developing. Check back in for more news in future weeks.

Party people around the world know how top-notch Ibiza is when it come to raves. The island is well-known for its nightclubs and beach clubs. Pacha and Amnesia are two of the best spots if you’re looking for a good place to dance.
Amnesia’s exclusive venue usually gathers the best techno DJs for an all-night run. Artist Marco Carola has been a resident for the ‘Music On‘ party brand hosted at the Amnesia for the past five years. However, it’s recently been announced that ‘Music On’ would be throwing a series of gigs at Pacha Ibiza this year as well.
If Carola were to play one of the ‘Music On’ parties at Pacha, he would breach the exclusivity agreement that he holds with Amnesia. Amnesia has now filed a lawsuit against Marco Carola to prevent him from playing. He will have to pay a $2.4 million fine if he doesn’t comply.
Amnesia has the right to own the exclusivity of the ‘Music On’ series. Their contract reads that there is a ‘prohibition to promote the brand at any other party or event, both for the Music On and for its main artist, Marco Carola’. Failure to respect this clause might incur in legal action – which is exactly what’s happening here.
As of today, the events at Pacha Ibiza are still advertising with Marco Carola as a headliner and other artists on the bill such as Joseph Capriati, Hot Since 82 and some other massive names. They start on May 16 and last all summer. Whether Carola will actually play or not remains to be seen.
