Worlds’ Best DJ Again Dutch
The 25-year-old Hardwell from Breda is according to the DJ Mag Top 100, world’s best DJ of 2013. The organization announced this on Saturday evening during the yearly Amsterdam Dance Event.
Hardwell, in real life called Robbert van de Corput, is the youngest DJ ever to become world’s best DJ.
Right after the announcement of the British magazine DJ Mag, the young world star immediately started with playing music for the more than 20,000 attendants.
Last years’ best DJ, Armin van Buuren, also from the Netherlands (Leiden) dropped to the second place.
Van Buuren held the first position for five years in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012.
DJ Tiësto, the mentor of Hardwell and also from Breda, dropped from the 2nd to the 4th place. On three is, like last year, the Swedish DJ Avicii.
Besides Hardwell, van Buuren and Tiësto, there are three more Dutch DJs in the top ten: Nicky Romero (7), Afrojack (9) and Dash Berlin (10).
DJ Hardwell says, “It is unreal that I beat my heroes, who inspired me already at a very young age.I want to thank them for what they have meant to me and the whole Dance world.”
