Singer Vera Blue (Celia Pavey) has been announced as one of four Australian artists set to entertain crowds as part of a spectacular pre-game celebration at the opening match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020. Blue will be joined by First Nations performer Mitch Tambo, DJ Dena Amy and Indian-born musician Harts (Darren Hart).

The crowd at Sydney Showground Stadium for the blockbuster between hosts Australia and India under lights on Friday 21 February will be treated to a celebration of music, dance and cricket. The event will also be broadcast to a global TV audience.

The line-up showcases a diverse mix of Australian artists and complements the earlier announcement that global pop superstar Katy Perry will perform at the final of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday 8 March, International Women’s Day.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

VERA BLUE is a singer-songwriter who combines her love of folk music with moody electronica. A leading artist on the music festival circuit, Blue recently featured on the chart-topping track ‘Rushing Back’ with Australian electronic producer Flume.

MITCH TAMBO, a proud Gamilaraay man is renowned for his didgeridoo playing and deeply committed to his First Nations culture and the people he represents. Mitch and DJ DENA AMY will together open the celebrations, performing a traditional welcome to country as part of an energetic set.

Likened to Prince and Jimi Hendrix thanks to his singular blend of funk, jazz, blues, psychedelic rock and indie electronic, HARTS (Darren Hart) is the voice behind the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 campaign song, ‘You’ve Gotta Get Up and Dance’. A re-record of the ‘70s hit from English rock-band, Supercharge, the song is available on streaming platforms, including Spotify.

ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Local Organising Committee CEO, Nick Hockley says fans will be treated to something special on opening night.

“What better way to celebrate the opening night of ICC Women’s T20 World Cup – the first of two T20 World Cups Australia is hosting in 2020 – than with some of the nation’s most exciting music talent.

The opening celebration will set the tone for world-class cricket action to follow and encourage fans from all the competing teams to get up and dance.”
