Proof that dreams really do come through
Half-Irish, half-Malaysian/Indian, DJ and radio presenter Tara Stewart grew up in Alice Springs, Australia where her parents owned a bar which had a thriving social and musical scene. This fostered a love of music and encouraged a spirit of adventure that led her to Ireland nearly ten years ago to pursue a career in DJing.
I've finally found myself as a DJ
Soon after arriving in Dublin, Stewart quickly established herself as a collaborator on the creative scene – lending edge as a DJ to brand events for Tommy Hilfiger, Magnum, Moët & Chandon and Irish Tatler amongst others; becoming a familiar voice on the airwaves and this year, snapping up her own radio show on 2FM. “I've finally found myself as a DJ,” Stewart says, “and I have played some insanely fun shows from the Casa Bacardi stage at Electric Picnic to DJing at London Fashion Week. This is my passion. But I also love art and fashion and all creative expression. I’m inspired by industry heroes like Annie Mac and Peggy Gou, both amazing DJs and entrepreneurs.”

And her plans for 2020? “I can’t wait to visit my family in Malaysia. I’m excited for more DJing opportunities and to be signed to Select Model Management in the UK to see what happens with that. But, I’m mostly excited to see and enjoy what takes place in the Irish music industry!”
