Tiësto is a name that no longer needs an introduction. He is synonymous with the best of electronic music, and continues to inspire a generation of up-and-coming young artists.
In addition to two Grammy nominations and a Grammy win in 2015, Tiësto has been named the #1 DJ by Rolling Stone, voted "The Greatest DJ of All Time" by Mixmag, ranked the #1 DJ in the world three times by DJ Mag, and was recently awarded the Edison Pop Oeuvre Lifetime Achievement Award (an honor he shares with David Bowie, Quincy Jones and U2 among others).
Tiësto has successfully transitioned his influence and savvy to industries beyond music, acting as an advisor to tech startups like Splice, Dubset and Doppler and signing on as an early partner with YouTube Live. Through current collaborations with T-Mobile and Budweiser, and efforts in the fashion space with his recently launched pop-up shop series, the DJ is bringing dance music culture to more people than ever before.
Throughout the past two decades, Tiësto has remained not only one of the world's most prolific and enduring artists, but one of music's top innovators. In spite of his accomplishments, Tiësto does not see his work as being done. "DJing is my life," the man isn't afraid to admit. But more than that, "It's a lifestyle."
