Tiesto is one of the most well known electronic DJs in the world. While Tiesto is basically a household name today, he hasn’t always been known as such. Born in 1969 in The Netherlands, his given name is Tijs Michiel Verwest, but he has also been known as Da Joker, DJ Limited, and more recently, DJ Tiesto. Tiesto first started DJing for school events at age 14, and by 1985 he was already a resident DJ for a local club. In 1997, he founded his own record label, Black Hole Recordings. In 2001, he released his first solo album and began to experience world-wide fame and recognition. He was named #1 DJ on this list three years in a row. In 2004 in Athens, Greece, Tiesto became the first electronic music DJ to ever play at an Olympic event. In 2008, he became one of the first electronic artists to be nominated for a Grammy. In 2014, Tiesto released his fifth album named A Town Called Paradise. He is notorious for his extremely long six hour solo sets and can be seen at major festivals, and he regularly DJs in Las Vegas.
