For this years upcoming Parklife we’ll be giving some of the line up our Destroy White Boy Q&A treatment. I’m sure you’ve all seen the line up check out the official line up video below. To kick things off we have Alison Wonderland who has thrilled dancefloors all over Australia and I’m sure will be doing the same at Parklife. Go check out some of her remixes on her official page. She was kind enough to answer our questions, and from some of the answers I think she might be my much better looking, more talented twin from the north. Tekken, Celtics Graceland and dressing up as Scary Spice!
