Illenium has made it to the coveted Forbes' 30 Under 30 list.

A set of lists published annually by the magazine giant, the American Forbes 30 Under 30 lists recognize 600 businesses and industry figures, with 30 taken from 20 industries each.

Among the acts featured on the 2019 list in the music category is previous DJ Mag North America cover star, Illenium. The Denver-based DJ and producer was placed in the list by a panel of judges, which included fellow US artists The Chainsmokers and 21 Savage.

Elsewhere on the music list was Lauv, Lil Nas X, Megan Thee Stallion, and Tyler, The Creator, with the likes of actor Ezra Miller, and Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard, appearing in the entertainment category.

Illenium entered the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs award at No. 64 this year.

Earlier this year, Public Enemy's Chuck D was awarded the Woody Guthrie Prize for 2019, an honour that is given to those who support people in the arts that don't have a platform.
