19 year old producer and DJ from Chicago

About Will Crockford
My name is Will Crockford. I’m a 19 year old from Chicago, IL. I like to produce music and take naps.

How would you describe your music style, in non-technical terms?

It's very loud, very energetic, and very melodic!

How and why did you decide to become a DJ?

I went to Lollapalooza in 2014 and instantly got hooked! I was inspired and started producing my own stuff and learned how to DJ from a friend.

Tell us a bit about your fans.

Crazy! Very energetic group of people. I have a great local fan base in Chicago

What are your top 3 influences? Doesn't have to musical.

Lana Del Rey
Martin Garrix

Any guilty pleasure(s)?

Lana Del Rey's entire Ultraviolence album

All-time favorite track(s)?

West Coast - Lana Del Rey

What is your favorite festival, why?

Lollapalooza! I'm from Chicago so it's a huge part of the culture. I grew up on it!

Funniest/weirdest thing that ever happened during a gig?

Our speakers caught on fire! The wiring got all messed up and the speakers legit started smoking.

What advice do you have for someone looking to book a DJ? Other than "book me!" ;)

Look for somebody you know is gonna fit your event. A lot of people will throw themselves at any event and I think thats really noble, but if they aren't gonna play wedding music at a wedding, it's probably not a good fit.
