Alison Wonderland touring company goes into liquidation, over $700k in debts owed

Wonderland Touring Pty Ltd, a touring company of which artist Alison Wonderland (Alexandra Scholler) is a 50 per cent stakeholder, has entered into liquidation after owing over $776,000 to creditor following her 2017 Scarehouse Project tour.

The company, whose co-directors and 25 per cent stakeholders are Falcona agents Christopher Murray and Garth Crane (also Scholler’s manager), entered liquidation on June 20 2018, a little under a year since it was created.

According to documents obtained by Music Feeds from Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), Wonderland Touring owes $776,056 to upwards of 80 creditors that range from security and equipment suppliers to plumbers.

A statement provided to TMN from Wonderland Scarehouse Project organisers details that the co-directors will be the ones copping the financial loss.

“The people who lost the most money in this situation are Alexandra Sholler and the other investors/organisers.

Alison and the other investors suffered huge personal financial losses and have waived their claims in order to make sure other debtors receive more.”

The statement goes on to state that the company lost a significant amount of money following the Melbourne leg of last year’s tour which had to be relocated to an indoor venue on short notice following severe weather warnings across Victoria.

“Liquidation of the company was actioned as a last resort and the only way The promoters and investors were able to move forward with the process of reimbursing affected parties.”

Wonderland Scarehouse Project featured performances from Scholler, A$AP Ferg, Lido, DJ Taco and Lunice, hitting secret venues in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney at the end of 2017.

Scholler is scheduled to head out on her Awake tour this November and December which is presented by Secret Sounds, Falcona and triple j.

TMN has reached out to liquidators and Secret Sounds for comment.
