Music is my therapy. A beat can reverberate through me and take me to a better place and a single lyric can have me feeling all the feels. When I went through the hardest time of my life it was music that got me through – screaming out the lyrics to my favourite Starset songs as I drove along in my Scream Demon (ie. my little maroon Nissan Micra) or listening to new tunes with a friend in the sun.
So it was no surprise that it became my mission to attend as many music festivals as I possibly could, in a chase for the feeling of freedom. So when Australian DJ Alison Wonderland announced a new festival style tour with a gothic heart I knew it was an event I could not pass up.
The Wonderland Warehouse Scarehouse Project was a Queen-of-Scream inspired tour set in remote farmlands up to an hour’s drive from many major cities in Australia. Featuring roving artists of zombies in cages, dark “Kill Them All” mosh pit lettering, and hundreds of upside down crosses everywhere, the Warehouse Scarehouse featured amazing performances by Lido (He was made for her!), Asap Ferg, Quix, Camoflage Rose, Lunice, Brownies and Lemonade, and Alison Wonderland herself.
The merch, lead up promotion and festival itself was epic, and if you don’t believe me then check out the photos below for yourself and get yourself to the next Alison Wonderland gig.
