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).

Fatboy Slim is a pseudonym of Quentin Leo Cook (b. 31 Jul 1963 in Reigate, Surrey - aka Norman Cook), an English big beat musician.

The new wave of fresh-outta-highschool EDM talent is led by just a handful of pioneers. Martin Garrix can certainly be counted as one of them.

In the DJ department Martin is quite the busy one too. He's had gigs at Mysteryland and was the youngest DJ ever to play the world’s largest nightclub Privilege in Ibiza...
