Fusing Progressive House with her captivating Techno feel has transcended the
evolution of House in today’s generation. As a runner up in Trance legend, Tiesto’s

Australia’s ITM Top 50 DJ Poll in 2013. Dara’s authentic self has been recognized

Tigerlily’s first instinct to DJ came when she received a fake ID at 16 after going
to the club, she knew the stage was her final destination. If she hadn’t pursued such a
dream, Dara Hayes would be writing music for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
In reality, this dream sky rocketed. Tigerlily holds residency at clubs in Australia
including PACHA, The World Bar, and SoHo in Sydney, and Red Square in Adelaide.
Tigerlily hosts her own show at PACHA, by the name of Kiss My Tigerlily. In her own

enough to curate myself alongside the Squared Division”. The Mix since then crowned
Tigerlily the #1 Female House DJ.
As if touring the world wasn’t time consuming, Dara is studying a Bachelor degree for
Media and Communications. Her guided inspiration was summed up in a Steve Job’s
quote in an interview with Saturday Sisters:
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs
in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And
they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify
or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change
things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy
ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can
change the world, are the ones who do.” Steve Jobs
Artists that have influenced Tigerlily include Calvin Harris, Nina Las Vegas, Anna
Lunoe, and NERVO. Tigerlily’s love for music will seduce the crowd with key vocals
thrown into each of her sets. Her passion for producing flows through the speakers at
Preserving such a dominant online presence and fans around the world setting the sky
as her limit. You can expect nothing more than such talent she possesses. Electro
House meets a contemporary feel to Progressive House that makes her one of a kind.
