Christina Aguilera Headlines Program for Victoria’s ALWAYS LIVE 2023

The full program for Victoria’s ALWAYS LIVE has been revealed, with 2000s pop favourite Christina Aguilera leading the charge. The singer will perform one show at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse on Saturday, 25th November – her first Australian performance in 15 years.

Aguilera is joined on the ALWAYS LIVE program by a host of internationals, including dance veteran Eric Prydz (who’ll be bringing his acclaimed HOLO show), UK disco act Jessie Ware, drag superstar Trixie Mattel, alt-pop performer Caroline Polachek, and elusive British singer Jai Paul, who’ll be playing his debut Australian shows at 170 Russell.

Christine Aguilera: ‘Fighter’

There are plenty of locals getting involved, with Amyl and the Sniffers, Peter Garrett & The Alter Egos, Amy Shark, Alex Lahey, Tones and I, The Chats, and Angie McMahon all locked in for various performances over the course of the event.

A.B. Original will lead a First Nations event with Miss Kaninna and DRMNGNOW, while the Cosmic Psychos have locked in three big 40th anniversary shows at Theatre Royal in Castlemaine with a load of artists supporting.

A bunch of other local acts will be playing shows in suburban and regional areas, including Holy Holy, the Temper Trap, Northeast Party House, Blusher, and more. See the lineup below – organisers have flagged that plenty more acts will be announced.
