== Life and musical career ==
=== Early life and career ===
Tijs Michiel Verwest was born in [[Breda]], [[North Brabant]], [[Netherlands]] on January 17, 1969. He had an interest in music since the age of twelve. When he was fourteen he decided to dedicate more time to it and began DJing professionally at school parties. He then moved on to become a resident DJ between 1985 and 1994 at several clubs in the Netherlands after his manager and friend Wilfred encouraged him. However, it was at ''The Spock'', a small club in Breda, where he was able to fine-tune his own style by playing in a separate room from 10 p.m. until 4 a.m. on weekends. In the beginning of his career, as a DJ he played mostly [[New Beat]] and [[acid house]].
 
In 1994, he began releasing material on Noculan Records' sub-labels Chemo and Coolman. During these years, he produced [[hardcore techno|hardcore]]/[[gabber]] tracks under aliases such as Da Joker and DJ Limited. He was later discovered by the [[general manager]] of [[Rotterdam]]-based Basic Beat Recordings.<ref name="starpulse biography">{{cite web |title=Basic Beat Recordings |url=http://www.starpulse.com/Music/DJ_Tiesto/Biography/ |publisher=Star Pulse |accessdate=April 19, 2008 }}</ref> In late 1994, he signed to Basic Beat where he met Arny Bink, Tiësto released records on the sub-label Trashcan, founded by Arny, and later created the Guardian Angel sub-label with Arny in which they introduced the popular Forbidden Paradise series. Meanwhile from 1995 to 1996 he released four extended plays on Bonzai Jumps and XTC, sub-labels of Lightning Records. In 1997, Tiësto joined his friend Yves Vandichel on his sub-label, DJ Yves, a division of the now defunct Human Resource label XSV Music. In the fall of 1997, both Arny and Tiësto decided to leave Basic Beat and create their own parent label, now known as [[Black Hole Recordings]], Trashcan was discontinued and Guardian Angel continued releasing music until 2002. Through Black Hole, Tiësto released the [[Magik (series)|''Magik'' series]] and also created two major sub-labels in 1998; [[In Trance We Trust (label)|In Trance We Trust]] and [[SongBird]].
 
From 1998 to 1999, Tiësto released music on Planetary Consciousness were he met [[Artists and repertoire|A&R]] Hardy Heller and invited him to release some records on Black Hole. Tiësto later included the [[In Search of Sunrise (series)|''In Search of Sunrise'' series]] on SongBird. In 1999, Tiësto joined forces with fellow Dutch deejay [[Ferry Corsten]] to create the trance based duo of [[Gouryella]].<ref name="Gouryella"/> He also collaborated with [[Benno de Goeij]] from 1998 to 2000 under the name [[Kamaya Painters]]. Since November 1999 he performed monthly as a resident at [[Gatecrasher]] in [[Sheffield]], one of the most popular clubs in [[England]]. In 1999 he also played in a 12-hour set, being his longest lasting concert in [[Amsterdam]].<ref>{{cite web |title=Longest concert in amsterdam |url=http://www.askmen.com/celebs/interview/11b_dj_tiesto_interview.html |publisher=[[AskMen.com]] |accessdate=August 2, 2008 }}</ref>
 
Late in 2000, Tiësto decided to concentrate on his personal work and left Corsten by himself to write and produce Gouryella's next single with [[John Ewbank]], the record company was demanding more tracks and neither Tiësto or Ferry could work together at the time.<ref name="Gouryella">{{cite web |title=Gouryella |url=http://www.thedjlist.com/djs/GOURYELLA/ |publisher=The DJ List|accessdate=April 17, 2008 }}</ref> Tiësto introduced [[Armin van Buuren]], [[Johan Gielen]] and Ferry Corsten to the mainstream with his first compilations and the ''In Trance We Trust'' series. ''[[Summerbreeze]]'' became Tiësto's debut DJ mix album in the [[United States|US]] with the help of a contract signed to [[Nettwerk]].<ref name="starpulse biography"/> ''Summerbreeze'' featured his remix of [[Delerium]]'s "[[Silence (song)|Silence]]", it spent four weeks in the [[United Kingdom|UK]]'s Top Ten chart, it reached number three in the ''[[Billboard (magazine)|Billboard]]'' dance chart.<ref name="starpulse biography"/> ''[[In Search of Sunrise 2]]'' was released in 2000. Tiësto decided to create a sub-label, known as [[Magik Muzik]]. The label began releasing Tiësto’s own releases, but it has also released tracks for the [[Filterheadz]], [[Oliver Lieb]], [[Mark Norman (DJ)|Mark Norman]], Mojado, [[Phynn]] and [[Jes Brieden]]. The label became a trademark which stands for high quality [[electronic dance music]] which was due to the release of Tiësto's classic dance anthem "[[Flight 643]]" in 2001.<ref>{{cite web |title=Magik Muzik Artists |url=http://www.blackholerecordings.com/label/222/Magik Muzik |publisher=[[Black Hole Recordings]] |accessdate=August 2, 2008 }}</ref>
 
=== ''In My Memory'' era (2001–2004) ===
Tiësto's fame started to rise in the early 2000s after his set at the first [[ID&T]] Innercity party (''[[Live at Innercity: Amsterdam RAI]]''), and the release of ''[[In My Memory]]'', his first solo album released in 2001 which contained 10 singles and 5 major hits; The singles from the album were: "[[Lethal Industry]]" which was actually produced in 1999 and had only 3 copies released at that time, the track was officially released in 2001 which was remixed by Richard Durand in 2006 along with "Flight 643" which was another leading single that was later adapted with vocals by [[Suzanne Palmer]] and released as "[[643 (Love's on Fire)]]". Other tracks were "[[Obsession (Tiësto song)|Obsession]]" in which Tiësto worked alongside [[Junkie XL]], the instrumental tracks "Dallas 4PM" and "[[Suburban Train/Urban Train|Suburban Train]]" with "[[Suburban Train/Urban Train|Urban Train]]" as its B-Side which contained some vocals. The last singles to be released were "[[In My Memory (song)|In My Memory]]" which is the title track for the album as it only received high ratings in the United States and the opening track "Magik Journey" which opened [[Tiësto in Concert]] (2003). On February 2, 2002 Tiësto played nine consecutive hours during the second edition of the Dutch Dimension festival. On February 27 he was awarded a Zilveren ('Silver') Harp music award. The same year he also received a Lucky Strike Dance Award in the category Best DJ Trance/Progressive. In August he became part of Moby's [[Area Festival|Area2 Tour]]. For eighteen days he travelled through the United States with artists such as [[Moby]] himself, but also [[David Bowie]] and [[Busta Rhymes]].<ref name="hollandrocks">{{cite web |title=Tiesto Bio |url=http://www.hollandrocks.com/jump/bio/bz5269.html |publisher=[[The Dutch Rock & Pop Institute|Dutch Rock & Pop Institute]]|accessdate=August 2, 2008 }}{{Dead link|date=March 2010}}</ref> In January 2003 Tiësto received the annual Dutch Popprijs ('Pop Award') during the Noorderslag festival.

His fame continued to skyrocket in the early 2000s, following his six-hour "Tiësto Solo" sets which he performed without other DJs or opening acts. This idea, of one DJ playing alone to a large crowd, was brought to its pinnacle when Tiësto was the first DJ to hold a solo concert in a stadium; on May 10, 2003, he performed for over 25,000 people in [[Arnhem]]'s [[GelreDome]].<ref name="hollandrocks" /> This concert was later called ''[[Tiësto in Concert]]'', the event was an enormous success.

The Athens Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games (ATHOC) asked Tiësto to perform at the Olympic Games, making him the first DJ to play live on stage at an [[Olympic Games]] at the [[2004 Summer Olympics opening ceremony]] in [[Athens]], where he played for 90 minutes.<ref>{{cite web |title=Tiësto Performed Olympics Set in Athens |url=http://www.internetdj.com/article.php?storyid=452 |publisher=Internet DJ |accessdate=April 17, 2008 }}</ref> Tiësto flew to Athens in January 2004 to have a meeting with the ATHOC. His ''[[Tiësto in Concert]]'' DVD caught their attention, after which he was asked to write more tracks based on his opening tune "[[Adagio for Strings (Tiësto)|Adagio for Strings]]" which could fit in with the Olympic spirit and combine the classical with the modern age; They also requested that he play his own produced music. The first rehearsal was on Saturday August, 7, for an empty stadium; the second rehearsal was on Sunday August 8 with 35,000 volunteers, a lot of the people recognised some tracks like "[[Traffic (Tiësto song)|Traffic]]" and "Adagio for Strings". The last rehearsal included almost 60,000 people in the stadium which was on Tuesday August 10, there were some technical problems, the mixer broke down, the monitors dropped out a couple of times and the music in the stadium was not continuously on the right volume.

The performance included new tracks produced especially for the Opening Ceremony and songs that were created to complement the spirit and theme of the ceremony. A condensed studio-recorded album of the songs played on the Olympic set was later released, including new songs specially composed for the occasion, entitled ''[[Parade of the Athletes]]'' in October 2004.<ref>{{cite web |title=Tiësto Performs At Olympic Games Opening Ceremony |url=http://remixmag.com/news/remix_tiesto_performs_olympic/ |publisher=Remix Magazine |accessdate=2010-01-30|archivedate=2008-05-18 |archiveurl=http://web.archive.org/web/20080518175558/http://remixmag.com/news/remix_tiesto_performs_olympic/ }}</ref> In the liner notes, he noted the IOC requested that the music not contain any lyrics as they could be inadvertently misinterpreted.
