Between sold-out headline events at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and topping the bill of his first Madison Square Garden show, it might be hard to imagine how 2019 could get any better for Illenium. The Denver, Colorado talent can now also check another milestone off his list: inclusion in Forbes‘ esteemed “30 Under 30” list for 2020.
The annual feature recognizes 30 public figures each for categories including “Games,” “Media,” “Education,” “Sports” and “Science.” In the “Music” category, Illenium (real name Nicholas D. Miller) joined the likes of DaBaby, Normani, Lil Nas X, Finneas O’Connell and Tyler, The Creator.
Miller was this year’s only EDM artist to make the cut – unless you count Jon Bellion, with whom Miller collaborated on “Good Things Fall Apart.” Krewella and DJ Snake represented EDM in the 2016 list, with Zedd landing in that of 2017.
