Tiesto | 01.30.2016
He’s gone from an underground trailblazer to a worldwide superstar who opened the 2004 Athens Olympic Games and was voted “The Greatest DJ of All Time” by Mixmag and the “#1″ DJ by Rolling Stone. He’s headlined festivals around the globe including Ultra Music Festival, Stereosonic, Coachella, Tomorrowland/TomorrowWorld and Electric Daisy Carnival; and has a storied 20-month residency at Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant and Nightclub and Wet Republic pool at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Artists ranging from Kanye West and Coldplay to Katy Perry and John Legend have personally tapped him for high-profile remixes, while Guess, AKG and Audiofly have collaborated with him on a fashion line and headphone brands, respectively. Moreover, A Town Called Paradise yielded his first two gold singles in the U.S. with the singles—”Wasted” [featuring Matthew Koma] and “Red Lights”—while a medley from the album also soundtracks a presentation at the Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas, a first for a dance music artist. With Sirius XM, he launched the “Club Life” channel (the only dance music artist to do so), nodding to his acclaimed compilation brand of the same name—now in its third installment. In December 2014, Tiësto was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical category for his remix of John Legend’s “All Of Me.” This is Tiësto’s second Grammy Nomination; following 2008’s inclusion in the Best Electronic/Dance Album category for Elements Of Life.
