Let us present one of Australia’s most in-demand female DJs, who doubles as conscious influencer: she’s feminist, vegan, has promoted the lifestyle for PTA, is dedicated in promoting environmental issues and also works with creating awareness and breaking down the social stigmas of mental health. Tigerlily is no stranger to the world stage. Hand picked as one of Tiësto’s main support acts for Asia and the USA, Tigerlily has enthralled audiences on some of the world’s most renowned stages and venues – from Hakkasan in Las Vegas and Club Octagon in Seoul to Tomorrowland in Belgium and the Main Stage of Ultra Music Festival Croatia.
Her real name is Dara Hayes. At the age of 19 she started DJing in her bedroom. Soon after that she entered an Australian competition called YOUR SHOT that teaches young people how to DJ and perform. Dara ended up coming second in this competition. ”It gave me a great kick start to the music industry and nightlife”, she says. Today she is one of the top 10 most engaged Australian acts on social media with fans seven times more likely to engage in her content than anyone else.’
