Case in point: She brought her own bloody festival to her hometown over the weekend. Having thrown sold-out warehouse parties across the country, Alison took it to the next level with Wonderland Scarehouse Project: A two-stage, horror-themed festival in West Sydney. Kicking off in the mid afternoon, punters were treated to homegrown heroes like Manu Crooks and Carmouflage Rose, who warmed their respective stages with manic results.
The international contingent then took over, with Lunice bringing an arsenal of trap anthems and his wildly erratic dance moves to the stage, closing with staunch anthems from his Hudson Mohawke collaboration project, TNGHT. Harlem rapper ASAP Ferg then returned, working through club favourites like ‘Work’ and newer cuts ‘Plain Jane’ and ‘East Coast.’ He then brought out Sydney’s own Manu Crooks back onstage to perform ‘Assumptions’ for the second time of the day, and it was even rowdier than the first.
Closing the whole event was the leading lady herself, Alison Wonderland, who thanked the swelling crowd for her first ever hometown festival. Delivering relentless bass anthems for the duration of her set, Alison’s latest single ‘Happy Place’ is aptly-named, given the magnitude of this event and the undeniable energy on display. We hope to see the event back next year in an even bigger form, but for now, check out what went down at the Wonderland Scarehouse Project:
