About Katie Knight
Born in 1992 in London, Katie has hosted some of dance music’s biggest radio, TV and YouTube shows alongside sport and lifestyle shows. From the age of 8, Katie had always known that she wanted to be a presenter, attending drama school from a young age and finalizing her studies at University in Valencia where she studied a double degree in journalism and audiovisual communication.
At 12 years old, her family decided to move to Spain’s Costa Blanca, where she became fluent in Spanish and which helped grow her career in the upcoming years.

In 2014 Katie hosted DJ Mag’s Youtube channel during ‘Best Of British Awards’. That same year she also hosted Corona’s ‘Corona Sunsets Festival’, Medusa Festival and filmed with Spain and Valencia FC player Jose Gayá.
In 2015 she moved to Barcelona to work on an electronic music streaming platform called Groovety, which was part of one of Spain’s biggest production companies, Mediapro, where she also directed most of the productions. Whilst in the Catalan capital, she also hosted the eSports festival Gamergy. She was the presenter of Groovety for 2 years until moving back to Ibiza where she became a host on Ibiza Global Radio, hosting daily shows from both the studio on the white isle as well as from different festivals around the globe such as Extrema Festival in Belgium, Music On Festival Amsterdam, Miami Music Week, Dream beach Festival in Almeria, Amsterdam Dance Event and Marenostrum Festival in Valencia amongst many others.

She is a very hard worker, creative, passionate about what she does, and is always up for a new challenge.
