DJ Alex Merrell’s coolest playlist picks

DJ Alex Merrell grew up in Vancouver, but now spends her days spinning everywhere from Coachella to TIFF — and for oh-no-big-deal clients like
Armani. We caught up with her in Toronto to ask about a few of her summer faves (and yes, the weather is getting warmer! It’s just around the corner, people!)
What was the best fashion party you spun at? "I DJd the opening of the new
Louis Vuitton store in Miami last year and they set me up to play in the window. There have been loads of highlights over the years but that was especially fun as I’ve adored LV’s window displays for ages and always check them out when I travel."
What’s the must-have ingredient for a good party? "It all comes down to great people and amazing music. Hula hoops and flamingo pool toys never hurt anyone either."
What music festivals are you looking forward to this summer? "I’m headed to Coachella and am beyond excited for a weekend in the sun after this brutal Eastern Winter! The lineup for Governor’s Ball in NYC is amazing too so I’m looking forward to having a local festival weekend in June."
