During this period, she also has been outspoken about the racism that she and many others experience in the music industry, highlighting an especially prevalent issue within the EDM scene. Aluna consistently has championed her POC peers and used her online platform to recognize their talents.
Throughout her set, she rotated between mixing and providing live vocals for her tracks. Aluna utilized the breadth of her discography by playing classic AlunaGeorge hits like “You Know You Like It”, the duo’s collaboration with Baauer “One Touch”, her solo collaboration with Louis the Child “Cry”, and many of her own songs including: “Summer of Love”, “Mine O’ Mine”, and “Envious”.

Aluna’s solo venture has provided the space for her to show the extent of her creativity and prove that everything she touches turns to gold …”
