Nicky Romero is a chart-topping Dutch DJ phenomenon and electronic dance music producer. He’s performed live all over the world at some of the biggest music festivals, including in South Africa in 2012 and 2014. Nicky is only 27 years old, but already has a list of achievements under his belt such as being ranked number eight in the 2014 DJ Mag top 100 DJs.


Olmeca Tequila has been focussing on the electronic music scene since 2010 and has previously partnered with Steve Aoki, Martin Solveig and Alesso. Olmeca decided that fans would get more value out of an ongoing long-term relationship with one artist rather than many, so they decided to narrow down the focus to one international superstar.


Nicky and his massive fanbase were the perfect match for Olmeca and they have recently announced a global partnership. They are excited to launch their international campaign that will result in local and international fans being featured in Nicky’s next music video. The most exciting part is that the video crew will shoot in the Mother City in 2016 for Nicky’s upcoming hit, Switch on the Night.


Part of the campaign entails Nicky acting as the editor of Olmeca’s free digital magazine, Switch on the Night. The magazine, which launched in October 2015, offers insight into big dance shows and the professional and personal lives of DJs.

Tequila is the ultimate party fuel. Olmeca plants and sources all its agave in the Los Altos region in the central highlands of Mexico. Distilled under the watchful eye of Master Distiller, Jesús Hernández, you can be sure that Olmeca Tequila will get the party started and keep it going ’til sunrise.
