Updated November 14, 2019 449 votes 45 voters 2.6k views35 items

List RulesVote up the best EDM groups who are active in 2019.

While it's fun to listen to old favorites, every year introduces music fans to incredible new bands and artists. The best DJ groups of 2019 include techno legends, mix masters, and even a few old-school favorites like The Chemical Brothers and Orbital.

When it comes to ranking hottest DJ and EDM groups right now, the live show is more important than ever. Perhaps more than any other genre of music, DJ and EDM shows act as a way to connect with fans beyond the streaming services. That said, electronic music can take on many shapes. Some of the best new DJ bands incorporate analog sounds into their tracks while others work exclusively on digital platforms.

Some of the best new DJ bands are poised for a break-out year by heading out on buzzworthy tours and releasing highly anticipated new albums. Which DJ group do you think is the best? 

Vote your favorite DJ acts up to the top of this list and be sure to add any groups we may have missed.
