Kygo was named to Forbes' 30 Under 30 Europe List in the Entertainment and Social Media categories.
Kygo joins Swedish singer Tove Lo and German tennis star Angelique Kerber in the Entertainment list of top music, film, television and sport stars. Forbes cites Kygo's Cloud Nine album reaching 11th spot on Billboard 200 Album chart as one of the reasons why he was listed.
He was also named in the list of Social Stars, joining a group of social media innovators such as actor Olivai Cooke and musician Christine and The Queens.
"It's a real honour to be named to these lists and be recognized together with these accomplished artists, athletes and innovators," Kygo says.
