Global girl group sensation XG (Xtraordinary Girls) are set to grace Australian shores for an unforgettable performance at Sydney's Hordern Pavilion on Friday, October 20, 2023, as part of the inaugural SXSW Sydney.

The seven-member powerhouse group featuring Jurin, Chisa, Hinata, Harvey, Juria, Maya, and Cocona, took the world by storm since their debut in March 2022, bringing us genre-defying hits like Shooting Star, Left Right, Mascara, and Tippy Toes, which have captivated audiences across the globe.

Known for their fresh fusion of hip-hop and R&B, remarkable production, and exceptional choreography, XG is poised to hit THE STAGE at SXSW Sydney for this exclusive, one-night-only performance, with artists Lil Cherry and GOLDBUUDA set to open for the all-girl group.

"Every stage we've had the honour to perform on has been incredibly special and unforgettable,” said Harvey of XG.

“The memories of meeting our ALPHAZ in-person and the scenery we've seen with our fellow members are all unforgettable. We look forward to visiting more countries and regions, sharing our music, and creating beautiful memories with everyone we meet!”

“I'm really excited about the opportunity to perform at a festival in Australia. It would mean a lot to me if I could show my performance to my grandparents, and I'm feeling very nervous about it!"
