The enigmatic young DJ, known for his masked performances, enjoyed a sold out European headlining tour this year, performed at Coachella, EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland and Lollapalooza South America, and joined label mate Kygo on tour for select North American dates.
In the past two years, 20-year-old Alan Walker has gone from learning music production via YouTube tutorials and posting music online for free to performing to sold-out crowds and playing dates with the likes of Rihanna and Justin Bieber. Currently, Alan is certified Gold and/or Platinum in 32 countries. Alan’s fan base first exploded when the gaming community’s use of his music made him one of the most streamed artists globally (over twelve billion streams worldwide to date) and made his debut single, “Faded,” the seventh most-liked video on YouTube of all time. He boasts over 15 million followers on YouTube alone. On DJ Mag’s annual poll where people from all over the world voted for their favorite DJs, Alan moved up 38 places on this year’s list to number 17. Alan was also awarded the magazine’s “Highest Climber” award, which celebrates the DJ that moved up the list in ranking the most in the span of a year.
Alan made his U.S. television debut this past January with “All Falls Down,” joined by Noah Cyrus on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He also performed at the League of Legends World Finals in a packed SRO Bejing National Stadium concert, where the historic Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony was held.
