The first edition’s of the Top 40 Live Streaming DJs has been made by the vote of 12 independent professionals of the music industry which were asked to give notes on criteria such as regularity, quality, scenery & fund raising, on an extensive list of DJs doing live streaming.
A new criteria, “the vote of the public” will be added to the 2021 edition asking the fans to vote for their favorite live streaming DJs but the poll will never be fully based on the public’s votes in order to keep the possibility for newcomers to stand out and enter the charts even if their fan base is still confidential.
