You’re probably aware that Tiesto is not the famous DJ’s real name, but do you know where that name came from?

The 52-year-old music star opened up about the origin of his name and how he got his start in the music world while appearing on the latest episode of the Spout podcast.

“So it’s really like something I made up. That was like a trend in the nineties, that all the dutch DJs, they wanted to sound Italian. So we all put like an “O” behind
our name. Barcelo. Gizmo. Tiesto. So, you know, it was it was just a thing. And then it stuck,” he said.

During the interview, he was also asked why he wanted to become a DJ. He said, “Well, just the joy I get out of playing music for other people. To me, it’s like making somebody a dinner and they really appreciate it. For me, with music, I play a song and you see the surprise of people’s faces or like, ‘wow, this is so awesome,’ you know. That’s how I started off, you know, as a birthday and wedding DJ, a high school DJ.”

Tiesto gives some incredible insight into his life and career in the full Spout interview.
