Ever wanted to get pulled up onstage at an Above & Beyond show to push the button? Few of us will ever get the chance to do it in person, but with the magic of Snapchat, you can come close. From Above & Beyond to Skrillex, some of the biggest names in EDM have embraced Snapchat as a way to connect with fans and open a window onto their sometimes-glamorous, sometimes-tedious lives. For your convenience, I’ve pulled together a list of all the DJs I know of who are on it, plus a few other organizations you might want to follow.
The following list is alphabetical by name, with Snapchat handle in yellow. Each entry includes a note on what kind of content you can expect to see from the user (if available). I’ve underlined the people I think are the best and most interesting users – if you only add some of the people on this list, make sure you add them.
