DJ Alison Wonderland‘s touring company has gone into liquidation with an estimated $776,000 owed to Australian and New Zealander creditors, documents show.
Wonderland Touring Pty Ltd., which threw 2017’s massive Wonderland Scarehouse Project warehouse tour, was put into liquidation in late June after failing to pay its creditors.
Despite a strong showing in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Auckland, which fielded artists including Wonderland, A$AP Ferg, and Lunice, the tour incurred significant losses.
Vince Foti, general manager of Foti Fireworks, told PEDESTRIAN.TV his company is owed $4,400 for services rendered on the Scarehouse Project tour. His company is one of 110 creditors owed by the company.
Alison Wonderland, aka Alexandra Sholler, is listed as a 50% shareholder of the company. Christopher Murray and Garth Crane, both of artist management firm Falcona, held 25% each.
In a statement provided to PEDESTRIAN.TV, the organisers of the Wonderland Scarehouse Project said liquidation was a “last resort”, and that a large portion of the losses was incurred due to the last minute relocation of the Melbourne event due to severe weather.
“Her team are very committed to continuing to work in assisting affected suppliers and the liquidator in recovering all outstanding monies to distribute accordingly,” the statement said.
Organisers also claimed Sholler herself waived her claims in order to direct money towards other creditors.
Alison Wonderland is slated to return to the Australian touring circuit this November.
