This year EDC Orlando has a lineup that is tough to beat, this is sure to be EDCO’s biggest yet as they celebrate their 10th anniversary. Leading up to the festival we’ll be showcasing some of our must-see artists for this year’s fest! This week we’ll be putting Norwegian Producer and DJ Alan Walker under the spotlight!
Behind his trademark mask and hoodie is the mysterious 23-year-old, Alan Walker. Growing up surrounded by technology and a fascination with programming, gaming, and graphic design, Alan Walker quickly became inspired by the EDM pioneers of his time. Adding his natural love for film scores, Walker quickly linked up his inspiration and musical influences when he first started to experiment with music production. In 2015, he debuted his hit single “Faded”, amassing over 1.3 billion Spotify streams, and a massive 2.9 billion YouTube video views.
The single also left him with a BRIT awards nomination for Song of the Year, as well as a Norwegian Grammy win in the same category. Being the 19th most-watched music video on YouTube, it has since earned Alan multi-platinum certifications around the world, and billions of plays across streaming services. The chart-topping debut album Different World arrived in late 2018, amassing over 3.2 billion streams on Spotify. Before that came a string of successful singles like “Alone” and “Darkside”, collaborating with artists like Ava Max, Noah Cyrus, Sia, Bruno Mars, and Coldplay, and remixed music from A$AP Rocky, Steve Aoki, Avicii, Miley Cyrus, Kygo, Charli XCX, Julia Michaels, and more.
With over 115 million followers across his social platforms, 8.7 billion YouTube views, and a staggering 50 billion audio and video streams, Alan Walker has played over 600 headlining shows and festivals to date, including Coachella and Tomorrowland, in addition to selling out arenas with his worldwide Aviation Tour. Known for his future bass, electro house hypnotic records that leave listeners emotionally connected, it is safe to say he’s put a lasting imprint on the music scene and is a force to be reckoned with.
