It’s not just the fact that Dara Hayes AKA DJ Tigerlily has an encyclopedic knowledge of bangers that makes her Australia’s favourite DJ. There’s something extremely infectious about her bubbly personality and positive energy that radiates from her spot on the decks through the speakers and into the audience. Seriously, try and find a photo of the 29-year-old globetrotter not smiling. We bet you can’t.
Naturally her love of all things sonic makes her the perfect JBL ambassador – she knows her music. So we thought we’d hit her up for her playlist of road trip essentials, and it’s quite the doozy of a list. Hitting us with a mix of 90s/early 2000s gems like ‘My Happiness’ by Powderfinger and ‘Slide’ by The Goo Goo Dolls, before upping the tempo with some modern pop like Imagine Dargon’s ‘Thunder’, and finally rolling into some dancey sizzlers, it’s got a little something for every road trip moment.
Dive into the playlist below and check out some snaps of Tigerlily with her JBL Xtreme 3 and the powerful Partybox 310. Oh, and head here to score one of these epic speakers for yourself – you don’t have to be a world-class DJ to get the party started!
