One of the most popular electronica musicians, Norwegian DJ and record producer, Alan Walker, will participate in Fest Festival in Chorzów, Poland, taking place from 23rd to 24th of August, 2019. He is born in UK, but lived in Norway for the most of his life.
Growing up in the digital era, Walker found an early interest in computers, which later turned into a fascination for programming and graphic design. He initially had no musical background; however, he later taught himself by watching tutorials on YouTube based on music production. Since his first single Faded released in 2015, he gained fans all over the world.
He is also a front figure for the masked movement, as he uses a hoodie and face mask when he performs on stage. When asked why he uses a mask during an interview by NRK, he stated that “It is to keep a low profile while maintaining the mental image they have given me. I think it’s pretty cool. A little twist that makes people ask themselves questions about who really is the person behind Alan Walker.” On an episode of his Unmasked series, he stated that “The mask is more of a sign and a symbol of unity and being alike each other, rather than me being different.
