Top 10 DJs to follow on Snapchat

Posted at July 14th, 2015 | by Sidhantha Jain | in

The dance music population has embraced Snapchat as their new source of entertainment, virgin music and of course a peek into the lives of their favourite EDM DJs! Such craze has taken over that the organisers at Electric Daisy Carnival teamed up with the before mentioned application for an exclusive ‘Our Story’ at their 2015 Las Vegas edition which featured Snapchat photos as well as videos of the attendees present at the event!

Each day, more and more artists are joining the Snapchat world to reach maximum public, promote releases/tours and also to tell their fans that at the end, Superstars are human beings too! We have put together a list of digitally alive EDM celebs that you should be following on Snapchat to cure the boredom blues!  Here we go:

Carnage (djcarnage)


If you’re one of those people who love to click pictures of your food and wait for a perfect shot before even taking a bite, then you’ll relate to this self acclaimed ‘#1 CUTEST CHUBBY DJ’! Ever since he made a Snapchat account, Carnage has kept his fans updated on his culinary adventures at Chipotle and occasional pictures of his performances at various gigs. Add him for hot stream of food and music. Primarily food.

Martin Garrix (martingarrix)


Studio time with other DJs, live shows, hi-fi after parties and awkward Selfies make up the majority of this Dutch prodigy’s Snapchat story. You get insight to his superstar life and how does it feel when you’re touching new grounds almost every other day. Keep up the good work, boy. And yeah, follow him to check new sounds too!

Afrojack (realafrojack)


Nick can be classified as a frequent Snapchatter. He usually updates snaps of his busy lifestyle, new toys and travel diaries. In order to promote his new album, he tweeted his Snapchat name and encouraged followers to add him and preview the unreleased material from his debut album Forget The World  through Snapchat stories. Certain DJs like Hardwell and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike  took to “Shazam” for debuting new music but now Snapchat seems to be the new go-to app!

Steve Aoki (aokisteve)


You either love him or hate him for his music and what he does on stage! But nobody can miss out on Steve Aoki ‘cause he catches your attention some way or the other. His Snapchat account is no different. The Dim Mak founder just signed up for the app with the creator himself, Evan Spiegel and is relatively new to this app on his smartphone. But man, he’s like the Babe Ruth at hitting homeruns in the Selfie game with his hilarious personal uploads! It’s funny to see what all he does with his long hair!

Calvin Harris (calvinharris)


Okay, so he’s rich, famous and hot. So supposedly, that gives Calvin Harris a license to post anything on Snapchat and get away without being judged….

Well, surprisingly, this actually sums up his Snapchat presence!

Harris mostly utilises the application to update whimsical Selfies as his stories. But the good part is, you don’t get to see much ‘advertisements’ of his upcoming releases, hence you get a supply of Snaps from the artist himself doing some weird kinda shit and not any irritating stuff.

Dillon Francis (Dillyfrancis)


This guy is a certified Snapchat comedian! You can catch him sharing videos as any of his infamous characters. He also uses his account to share snippets of his new tracks and even created much hype here, about his debut album ‘Money Sucks, Friends Rule’ before it was officially released. Leaks of his unpublished tracks aren’t the real reason you should follow him but because of his bizarre yet hilarious faces and Snapchat masterpieces!

Alesso (alesso)


If you want to follow someone who regularly updates relevant music-oriented stories, then this Swedish producer should be your first choice! Don’t worry; his tale isn’t as plain and mundane as it sounds! He also shares exciting behind-the-scenes of his live shows, teasers and random Selfies every now and then. Alesso became the first EDM artist to premiere full music videos such as “Heroes (We Could Be)” straight through the app. However, it’s not yet known if he’s the one running his account or he has hired someone to look after, just like Tiesto! Albeit serves the purpose fun posts anyhow.

Diplo (Diplo3000)


Why follow Diplo? In one word: Booty. Being a huge supporter and a producer of innumerable Twerk Anthems we do expect some dough from his feed.  But sadly you’re in for not much luck here. You might be disappointed by him as he more commonly shares pictures of him travelling around the world and doing what he does the best, all with a perfect smile! He even uploaded a Snapchat story during his short stay in Mumbai, where the official video for ‘Lean On’ was shot. Although there’re a few studio sessions breaking up the stream of him touring, but that’s all cool.

Skrillex (skrilloo)


As Skrillex tours around the world, he shares photos of the many places he visits and when he’s not posing for the camera, he ends up spending a lot of time with Jack U’s other half Diplo. Skrill also shares videos of him and his friends at his workstation. Like other artists listed here, he doesn’t miss the opportunity to share fragments of his unreleased/unheard mixes.

Tiesto aka Snapchat King (tiesto)


He’s one of the most active and social media friendly guys mentioned here. With a 100 second story almost every day, his uploads commonly revolve around his ‘Club Life’, big award nights, lavish hotel rooms, pool parties, champagne showers , bikini babes and also occasional music previews at his studio.  You should definitely add him if you’re into the EDM lifestyle but a little too lazy or out of funds to implement it in your own life and also are completely okay looking for, ‘dusro ki khusi me apni khusi!’

Fun fact: He has hired a professional Snapchatter to share videos of all his lives shows!
