EDM boy genius Alan Walker is coming to Malaysia!
In conjunction with Heineken “Live Your Music” campaign, the 19-year-old Norwegian DJ will be holding “Walker Tour: Asia” at Penang, Johor Bahru, and Kuala Lumpur on 14th, 15th, and 16th December respectively.
Alan Olav Walker, who had no musical background, taught himself by browsing YouTube videos based on music production. He started making music on his laptop in 2012 and his songs quickly caught the attention of record labels.
His debut single “Faded” (2015) featuring Iselin Solheim, which gained gold in NVPI (The Dutch Association of Producers and Importers of image) and RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), received platinum certification in over 10 different countries. The music video for his 2016 single, “Sing Me To Sleep”, has over 123 million views on YouTube.
Heineken “Live Your Music” is a new experiential music platform built on the collective passion for experiencing music. It is a global movement born out of different music styles but with a shared love for music itself. The campaign puts music fans on centre stage, bringing their stories to life, sharing their experiences, and ideas with other music fans while elevating their musical experiences.
