Tiesto Talks EDM Takeover in Vegas

Tiesto has been in the dance music game since the mid-'90s, but his career has never been hotter than it is right now. The Dutch superstar DJ just played Las Vegas's iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand hotel (where he actually lives, in a posh suite), and he was actually one of the first DJs to headline a Vegas residency, opening the doors for other Sin City spinners like Calvin Harris and Avicii.

Tiesto caught up with Yahoo Music backstage at iHeart, where we talked about the recent rise of EDM (and how he feels about the term "EDM" in the first place) and where the genre is going next. Check out the convo in the video above!
