Tigerlily @ Rev Ultra Lounge
by Scott Malam


Dara Hayes, a distinguished Australian DJ known as Tigerlily is taking the Electro

House scene by storm. At 23, Tigerlily DJ’s in 110 clubs a year. While averaging 9

flights a week, Dara has accustomed to devoting her time to fans around the world.

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

Your Shot DJ Competition was a solid kickstart for her career. Since then she has

accompanied Tiesto in Tiesto & Co’s Asian Club Life Tour, festivals including

Creamfields, Stereosonic, and Future Music Festival. Tigerlily was voted the #12 in

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

across social media platforms providing the respect she’s earned as an artist.

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

words she described the show as “A trip down fantasy lane and something I was lucky

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

any show.

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.

As if her beautiful aura wasn’t convincing, Tigerlily will be at Rev Ultra Lounge,

February 5th for you to experience a show worth wild.
