Over the past 20 years, electronic dance music or EDM, has become one of the most popular music genres in the world. In fact, in many circles, electronic dance music artists are considered the new incarnation of rock stars. Between the thumping beats, the bright lights and music that gets people shaking their hips and flailing their arms, these artists have struck a chord with their most ardent supporters. The biggest and best EDM artists have the rare ability to command big dollars at their club and festival appearances, and are often listed near the top of richest musicians. Their songs are considered some of the best EDM music out today.

That said, who is the best EDM artist, which isn't to be confused with the best electronic artists. This is a question that fans of the many subgenres of dance music have been trying to answer for some time. Some would call comparing the best house artist to other electronic dance music artists extremely difficult. Yet the beauty of determining who should be at the top of this list is that it includes all musicians who fall under the umbrella of dance music, electronic (or electro) and club music. But, seeing the legends who populate this list, like Daft Punk and Tiesto, to superstars like Avicii and Skrillex to the next generation dance music artists like Krewella are all on this list. If you love EDM music artists and can't wait to get to see your favorite DJ perform, then you're definitely going to want to vote on this list. Some of the best EDM music is represented on this list.

The list should include most of the popular good electronica artists, so if there are any missing, please feel free to add them  So, "who are the best electronic dance artists of all time?" and "Who is the greatest EDM music artists ever?" These are the questions this list seeks to answer, and it's up to you to decide.
