The Best Techno Artists

List Criteria: Only techno bands and techno music artists from any time period

Techno artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good techno bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top techno bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Techno groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all techno bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest techno bands of all time, since the most famous techno artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best techno music.

You can click on the techno band names to see more information about that particular notable techno group. If they're near the top of the best techno artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top techno bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the techno band names themselves.

List features items like Neil Young, The Black Eyed Peas and more! Rank your favorite items to give them a better chance of rising to the top of the list. Make sure to give items you favor (like Joel Thomas Zimmerman or Tiësto) a vote.

All important, significant and iconic names in techno music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new techno bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of techno, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into techno music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good techno bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent techno bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best techno bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest techno musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular techno bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
