Australian indie-pop artist G Flip has been unveiled as the pre-game entertainment for Saturday’s AFLW Grand Final, describing it as “one of the highlights of my life”.
The AFL announced on Monday that the Melbourne-based singer-songwriter, also known as Georgia Flipo, would perform at Adelaide Oval before the Crows and Brisbane battle for the 2021 AFLW premiership cup.
The 26-year-old, who is best known for her breakout single About You, said she was thrilled to be performing on the biggest day on the women’s football calendar.

“I’ve been a footy fan since my dad put a Magpies scarf around my neck as a baby and I haven’t missed a Pies game this season.
“I don’t just like footy, I love footy.
“This will be one of the highlights of my life, I’m very excited.”
The AFL also announced that both the national anthem and Welcome to Country would be performed by local talent as part of the pre-game formalities.
The AFL’s customer and commercial boss, Kylie Rogers, said it was exciting to celebrate another fantastic year of female football with a great line-up of Australian talent.
“We’re delighted to have G Flip and some exciting local talent entertain fans ahead of the 2021 NAB AFLW Grand Final,” she said.
“Australians have been starved of attending live music since the global pandemic began, so we hope to see as many G Flip and football fans secure their seat at the NAB AFLW Grand Final and fill the stadium in celebration of women’s football.”
