Aussie EDM hit-maker Alison Wonderland has been busy making her mark in the music world, paving the way for future female DJs to dominate the genre. Since her debut in 2015 we’ve seen her win 3 awards, have both of her albums (Run and Awake) climb the charts, as well as become the highest-paid female DJ in Coachella history – and that was only the beginning. Alison (real name Alex) has had an incredible year of achievements while perfecting her craft and smashing records and goals along the way.
Take a look at some of the highlights from Wonderland’s year below.
DJ MAG TOP 100 LIST’S HIGHEST CLIMBER
Jumping up a whopping 52 spots to claim number 44, Wonderland took the title of Highest Climber for the 2019 list of DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs. Overtaking big house names such as Zedd, Kygo, Diplo and Robin Schulz, the Aussie DJ is the only solo female artist in the top 45 and doesn’t sit far behind The Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris and Skrillex. In the highly male-dominated industry, Wonderland is proving that not only is she coming for the crown but she’s doing so very quickly, so don’t get too comfortable.
TWO SOLD OUT RED-ROCK SHOWS
The open-air Red Rocks Amphitheatre just outside of Denver, Colorado comfortably sits about 9,500 people and Wonderland achieved a massive personal goal by selling out two of her Temple of Wonderland shows held at the venue. In doing so, she also became the first female EDM musician to achieve the feat, adding yet another unforgettable history-making moment to her resume.
LAUNCHED A CLOTHING BRAND
In 2018, Wonderland launched her very own clothing/merch line ‘FMUOASL’ penned after her catchphrase “F**k Me Up On A Spiritual Level.” Due to its massive popularity, the brand has only grown and fans from all around the world are representing not only Wonderland as an artist but as a concept. The brand’s Instagram page now has over 18,000 followers.
BECAME THE FACE OF A PEPSI X FOREVER 21 CAMPAIGN
In an exclusive collaboration earlier this year, Pepsi and Forever 21 teamed up to design tees, crewnecks, tie-dye hoodies and more for a creative clothing drop. The campaign saw Wonderland representing it as well as her hit ‘Peace’ being used for the theme song, celebrating her unique style and effortless way of influencing others. Billboards of the DJ advertising the campaign were seen around the US and in Times Square.
COVERED BILLBOARD MAGAZINE
Wonderland joined fellow EDM female stars TOKiMONSTA and Rezz for the 2019 dance issue in March, providing her own separate cover shoot and interview. In her interview, Wonderland opens up and touches on her storytelling way of producing and writing and her talent for singing.
