Anna Lunoe (born 26 May[1]) is an Australian DJ, vocalist, songwriter and producer now living in Los Angeles, California. Lunoe has performed at music festivals including Coachella,[2] Lollapalooza,[3] Ultra,[4] TomorrowWorld[5] and Hard Summer.[6] She now hosts a weekly show[7] on Apple Music's Beats1 Radio.

Early life[edit]

Anna Lunoe was born in Sydney, Australia.[8] Originally of Danish and Lebanese descent,[9] Lunoe grew up songwriting on her acoustic guitar.[10] She began her music career as host of a dance show at FBi RADIO,[11] an independent youth broadcaster in Sydney. She later became the first woman to mix for Ministry of Sound Australia.[12] During her time at Ministry of Sound, she produced three compilations, which all went Gold in Australia[13] and topped the Beatport Indie Dance Compilation Chart.[14]

Career[edit]

In early 2012, Lunoe relocated to Los Angeles[15] to pursue her career. Shortly after arriving, Lunoe broke into the EDM world with her debut EP, Anna Lunoe & Friends, featuring Flume and Touch Sensitive.[16] "Real Talk" received the No. 1 spot on the Beatport Indie Dance Chart[17] for four months.. "I Met You", her collaborative effort with Flume, currently has over 3 million views on YouTube.[14]

In 2014, "Bass Drum Dealer (B.D.D.[18])" was picked up by Skrillex for a release on his Nest imprint. She also released a Zane Lowe-premiered[19] collaboration "Feels Like"[20] with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. After a festival run and 2-month US tour with The Weeknd,[21] Lunoe's second EP, All Out, debuted at No. 4 on the iTunes Dance Chart.[14]

In early 2015, she released "Pusher",[22] alongside Sleepy Tom. To follow up, Lunoe teamed with Chris Lake to produce "Stomper".[23]

On 18 June 2016, Lunoe made history by becoming the first solo female DJ to perform at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas' main stage.[24]

In April 2017, Lunoe announced that she was pregnant via an Instagram post, and proceeded to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival that weekend.[25]

Additional work[edit]

In May 2015, Lunoe was approached by Zane Lowe of Beats 1 to work with a group of artists including Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Elton John and Drake on Apple's launch of Apple Music. Lunoe now hosts her own weekly program[7] entitled "Anna Lunoe Presents: HYPERHOUSE", broadcasting live to over 100 countries every Friday at 9PM PT/12AM ET on Beats1 Radio. She has brought on dance acts such as Jamie XX,[26] Diplo,[27] Kaskade,[7] Boys Noize,[28] What So Not,[29] Tokimonsta[30] and many more.

In 2016, Lunoe launched her own touring and music platform, HYPERHOUSE,[31] curating stages for thousands of fans at music festivals such as HolyShip and WMC along with a 15 city tour, bringing along Sleepy Tom, DJ Sliink, Rezz, Wuki and San Holo.
