Tiësto Bio


Tijs Michiel Verwest, known as Tiësto, is a Dutch DJ and record producer. Born in 1969 in the Netherlands, superstar Tiësto has played an integral role in the growth of electronic dance music.

In 1997, he founded the label Black Hole Recordings, which featured not only his own releases, but also tracks by artists such as Ferry Corsten and Armin van Buuren. No longer involved with Black Hole Recordings, Tiësto currently releases music through his self-owned record label, Musical Freedom, and Ultra Records.

After years of producing music within the Netherlands, Tiësto’s international fame began to grow after releasing his first solo album, In My Memory, in 2001. He began doing tours in the United States and various other countries, became the first DJ to hold a solo concert in a stadium, and also became the first DJ to play live on stage at the Olympic Games (2004 Summer Olympics in Athens).

Over the years, Tiësto’s style has evolved from classic trance to the newer upbeat electro house that is quickly gaining wide-scale popularity.

Tiësto has been crowned the “World’s No. 1 DJ” 3 times by DJ Magazine and his third album received a nomination for a Grammy Award in 2008. During his “Club Life College Invasion Tour” in 2011, Tiësto ended the tour with a sold-out event at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles, where he performed in front of 26,000 fans and is credited with playing the largest single headline DJ show in United States history.

Tiësto has collaborated with musical artists from almost every genre, including Wolfgang Gartner, Priscilla Ahn, Tegan & Sara, Nelly Furtado, Three 6 Mafia, Diplo, Kanye West, Coldplay, and Katy Perry.

Some of the biggest Tiësto tracks include “Adagio for Strings,” “Elements of Life,” “I Will Be Here,” “Escape Me,” “Maximal Crazy,” and “We Own the Night.”

I know Tiesto has been around forever but I didn't start listening to him until maybe the last 8 years. I am not a hardcore fan that owns every record or anything, but he is an awesome DJ. All I can say is BOY does he know how to put on a show. I have seen him three different times at three different venues and each time he was amazing. I watched him twice in huge arena venues and once in a smaller more personal setting. Never once did he disapoint. He knows how to get the crowd going and he knows the perfect time to drop the beat. Whenever he plays, I am pretty much dancing ALL night. If you haven't seen him live you should definitely see him at least once.

I'm prettty into Tiesto. I saw him in Ibiza which was a crazy experience in and of itself, and he played a really cool set. But probably the best time I saw him was at Coachella 2010, when he played on the main stage to close Saturday night. The crowd was insane, because he was the last one still playing, so all of Coachella flocked to the stage. When I looked behind me and in front of me there were literally people all around as far as I could see, but somehow his lasers and lights reached all the way to the back and the sound was still awesome because there were speakers set up at intervals back and back and back. His set made me the EDM fan I am today; the only way to describe it is EPIC. He does a lot of really beautiful trance-y mixes of songs, like Crosses by Jose Gonzalez, but when he plays live he goes Maximal Crazy hard like a G. Sure he's kind of a sell-out now but he's a damn good DJ!

Tiesto has been around for quite some time and probably was the first trance artist I listened too. His style of music usually involves club / house music which I am not a big fan of but I do like his progressive trance tracks like 'Elements of Life', 'Dokmai', 'Las Vegas', 'Reason To Believe'. He has a radio show called "Club Life' which airs every week and showcases the best of house/club/trance music. I have listened to few of his shows but I still prefer 'A State of Trance' / 'Trance around the World'. He may not be my favorite but if given a chance, I will definitely go to see him live.

I find Tiesto to be highly overrated. Sure, he's been around for a long time and helped pioneer electronic music, but that doesn't mean he is very good. I have seen him three times now, and each time I would get bored during his set. I'm a very easily entertained person, especially at giant raves with DJs spinning, but I legitimately get bored at him every time. All his drops sort of sound the same. He does have some good remixes though. I enjoy his remix of Coldplay's "Paradise" and Kanye West's "Lost In the World." Nevertheless, if you're at a big festival and trying to choose between seeing Tiesto and someone else, choose the other person or band.
