MIXMAG'S GREATEST DANCE ACT OF ALL TIME REVEALED

The results are in! From September to December last year, you voted in your tens of thousands to decide who was the greatest dance act of all time.

The poll was embraced by fans from Birmingham to Buenos Aires – acts campaigned fiercely, heated debate ensued and all of our expectations were exceeded by your response to the poll.

And now the wait is over. Below is a list of your top twenty greatest dance acts of all time, including the all important winner.

In a closely run battle, we can now reveal that The Prodigy have emerged victorious, pipping robotic legends, Daft Punk, into second place by a very tight margin.

 Keith Flint of The Prodigy commented: “To walk off a stage and feel like we smashed it – that’s the reward for us, to see the crowd react and know we’ve done what we’ve come to do. But something like this is truly voted for by the people – and essentially we are nothing without them, so it feels awesome and really respectful.”

All at Mixmag offer congratulations to The Prodigy, an act who have managed to stay as exciting as ever, over two decades on from their first gig.

The full results are published in the latest issue of Mixmag, on sale today (Thursday January 19) with comment from all the acts in the top 20. You can grab an iPad/iPhone version here.
