Forbes‘ annual 30 Under 30 list has hosted some of the hottest young talents ranging across a variety of industries. For this year’s music category, Forbes has chosen to honor Illenium. Illenium is the only electronic musician to be nominated under the music category. Other nominees include Tyler, The Creator, Lil Nas X, Normani, Lauv, and Jon Bellion.
The 28-year-old Denver-bred producer has a discography that boasts over 1 billion streams and has racked up countless accolades. This year alone, his third studio album Ascend peaked at #14 on the Billboard 200 and he sold out Madison Square Garden and three consecutive nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. He’s performed at every festival imaginable from Lollapalooza to Coachella and is set to headline next year’s Winter X Games in Aspen. Suffice it to say, Illenium is more than deserving of this nomination. Check out the full profile below.
