Tiesto (feat. Jonsi)
Headlining this year’s festival is Dutch DJ and producer Tiesto.
As arguably the most famous DJ in the world, Tiesto’s influence in dance music cannot be overstated.
His star power has helped to change the way DJs are perceived: They’ve gone from anonymous faces behind turntables to iconic musicians.
On the title track from his latest album, Kaleidoscope, he teams up with Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi. The Icelandic singer’s haunting falsetto builds the first five minutes of this song, and releases it to a trance-y explosion of synthesizers. The latter half of the piece is more typical of Tiesto’s sound.
