DJ Mag has announced a tie up with children’s charity UNICEF, and will use its Top 100 DJs poll this year to raise money for the organisation. Voting for the annual survey of clubbers worldwide opens on 5 Jul, with the winner announced at the Amsterdam Dance Event in October.

Confirming the new charity partner, DJ Mag MD Martin Carvell told reporters: “We’re very excited to have UNICEF as the charity beneficiary of Top 100 DJs 2017. Both the Top 100 DJs and the dance music industry have grown immensely over the last 25 years. Over one million people voted in last year’s poll and with the continuing global expansion of electronic music, we feel that the time is right for us, as music fans, industry, and DJs, to give something back”.

Meanwhile UNICEF UK’s Deputy Executive Director Catherine Cottrell added: “We would like to thank DJ Mag for supporting UNICEF through the 2017 Top 100 DJs poll. The money raised through working with this long-established cornerstone of the dance music calendar will have a great impact on the lives of children around the world. DJ Mag readers’ donations will help UNICEF to continue to protect children in danger and transform their lives. With your help, we can make the world a safer place for children”.
