The second international guest to light up the stage at the 2019 ARIA Awards has been announced, and it’s none other than ya girl Dua Lipa. Combined with Halsey on the same gig, this year’s music industry night of nights is shaping up to be a red hot one.

After performing a huge set at this year’s Brit Awards, teaming up with St. Vincent for a hell of a show at the Grammys, and about to step onstage at the MTV EMAs on November 3, Dua Lipa will turn it out at Australia’s big awards show to round out a bloody massive year for the 24-year-old UK singer.

Dua Lipa is dropping her new single ‘Don’t Start Now’ on November 1st too, so be extremely ready for a performance from her that dips into every part of her career – maybe something from her collabs with Calvin Harris, or Mark Ronson and Diplo, and surely her massive hit, ‘New Rules’, which spiked to #2 on the ARIA charts.

The whole show goes down in Sydney on November 27, and will be broadcast from 7.30pm that night, so call dibs on the loungeroom a full month in advance, plan some snacks or a very elaborate drinking game (take a drink every time Dicky Wilkinson goes off script), because this is shaping up to be a pretty ‘yuge ARIA Awards.
