The Prodigy, above, have been named the most influential dance act of all time, according to a GlobalGathering survey of UK club goers released today.

The Top 10 most influential dance acts are:

  1. The Prodigy (29%)
  2. Daft Punk (13%)
  3. Faithless (11%)
  4. New Order (9%)
  5. Orbital (7%)
  6. Kraftwerk (5%)
  7. Paul Oakenfold (4%)
  8. Carl Cox (4%)
  9. Fatboy Slim (3%)
  10. Chemical Brothers (2%)

Over 2000 festival and club goers took part in the survey, which was commissioned by the UK dance festival GlobalGathering to mark ten years of the festival. Music fans were asked to vote for the dance act they considered the most influential from a shortlist compiled by the Global team.
