Ultimate Party Q & A: Ayla


Sunshine Coast songstress Ayla is going from strength to strength since the release of her latest EP ‘When The World Ends’, including winning the 2016 ‘Regional’ Queensland Music Award for her song Waiting and touring with Kate Miller-Heidke. We asked her about her ultimate party ahead of performing at AAA Backstage’s 5th B’day Party at The Foundry.

You’re hosting a party! What bands/artists are invited?

It’s my 21st this year, so this is good practise! I’ll invite all of my musician friends from the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane to that one, but if The Jungle Giants, Gang of Youths, or y’know Lana Del Ray, want to stop by and play a set I wouldn’t object…

What is the dress code? Or is there a theme?

Pyjama/beach party!

What is your secret party trick?

I’ve been working on my juggling and I can do a few reps before it all falls apart. I’ll have to perfect that before November!

What’s the contents of the Kings Cup?

Hopefully everyone’s drinking their favourite drink, so, the cup is probably a horrible mix!

Which drinking game do you dominate/dominates you?

Kings Cup is always a favourite.

What’s the party jam? What tunes have everybody dancing?

Probably Uptown Funk because let’s face it, it’s a banger!

Tell us your white girl wasted story!

After our uni break up for the year I woke up next to a Doritos bag full of the contents of my stomach from the night before.

Top 5 songs to be on your party playlist, go!

Shania Twain – Man I Feel Like a Woman, Michael Jackson – Billy Jean, Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody , Augie March – One Crowded Hour, and Aretha Franklin – Respect.

Lastly, what are you most looking forward to about AAA Backstage’s 5th Birthday Party? 

Seeing all the bands and having good times with cool people!

Ayla is appearing at AAA Backstage’s 5th B’day Party at The Foundry alongside The Jensens, Sahara Beck, Lastlings, Machine Age + many others!
