Australian Eurovision stars headline FIFA Women's World Cup Fan Festival

The FIFA Women's World Cup kicks off this Thursday 20 July across Australia and New Zealand.

On top of the action on the field, there will be the FIFA Fan Festival offering a feast of football, music, entertainment, local culture, food, and games.

The festival takes places in nine cities across Australia and New Zealand with two Eurovision stars performing.

Montaigne - Adelaide/Tarntanya on August 11

Montaigne is a talented football player herself and she comes from football stock. Her father Gus Cerro was a football player in the Australian National Soccer League and also played internationally in Malaysia.

Montaigne herself went on to play at a high level including for the Marconi Stallions and North West Sydney Koalas, even being captain in her first team.

This led her to apply to play football in the US college system, and during that process she included a song over her football highlight reel. That led her to move towards music and the successful career she has today.

Montaigne won 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' in 2020 with 'Don't Break Me' but was unable to compete that year due to the pandemic. She returned to compete remotely in 2021 with 'Technicolour'.

Jessica Mauboy - Sydney / Gadigal on July 21

Jessica Mauboy will performing this Friday at 8:00pm at the Sydney Fan Festival at Tumbalong Park, Darling Harbour.

Jessica needs no introduction as one of Australia's most successful female artist this century.

She competed at Eurovision 2018 making the Grand Final with her song 'We Got Love' and also performed as an interval act at the 2014 Contest in Copenhagen with 'Sea of Flags'.

She would perform that same song at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The FIFA Fan Festival will also be taking place in:

  • Brisbane / Meeanjin

  • Melbourne / Naarm

  • Perth / Boorloo

You can see all the acts performing in all cities on the FIFA Fan Festival website.
