Radio Starmaker Funded Artists Round 68

Success Fact: Allie X

Allie X

Starmaker’s support has allowed Allie X to focus on touring by enabling her to access new and emerging markets as well as strengthen her international fanbase. Funding for the latest Super Sunset tour made it possible for Allie to perform at a number of unique festivals, including RuPaul’s DragCon and LadyLand Festival, as well as return to Brazil - her fastest growing market. Building on the success of this tour Allie X was able to secure opening slots across North America and Europe with both Marina (fka Marina & The Diamonds) and Charli XCX in fall 2019, placing her in the ranks with her international pop contemporaries and opening up opportunities for a headlining tour in China.

In addition to touring support, Starmaker’s international marketing funding has provided the financial resources necessary for Allie X to hire a dedicated team of publicity and social media strategists. These specialists have helped her establish and build international relationships and have further enabled her to continue to pursue her creative visions.
