From Clubber to Beats Maestro

Ilario Alicante

For DJ and producer Ilario Alicante (Italy), it all boils down to one core connection: the dancefloor. Starting as a clubber, he remains a clubber, forever linked to the rhythms of the night.

As a devoted clubber, he danced in Europe’s finest nightclubs, notably in Germany and Ibiza. It was on these dancefloors that he had a musical epiphany, encapsulating the emotions of dancers into his tracks, leading to his breakout hit, ‘Vacaciones En Chile,’ in 2008.

His exceptional talent was further solidified with the track ‘Living Near Africa’ on Cecillé Rec, making him the youngest artist to grace the legendary Time Warp festival’s stage in Rotterdam. From that point, Ilario embarked on a whirlwind journey, performing on Europe’s grandest stages and beyond. Major festivals and renowned clubs opened their doors to his music, catapulting him into the global spotlight as one of Italy’s foremost musical ambassadors and one of the world’s most dance-inducing DJs.
