G Flip’s Grand Final Set Was So Fkn Good We’ll Forgive Them For The Collingwood Scarf

Voice of a generation G Flip absolutely obliterated their set at the AFL Grand Final. It was so good, we’ll forgive them for the obscene, borderline sacrilegious Collingwood Magpies scarf.

Perched behind a drum kit and belting out Jet’s ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’, the half time rockstar set the audience and the internet alight.

G Flip was joined on the lineup by singers Robbie WilliamsDelta Goodrem, Christine Anu as well as a bunch of other incredible Aussie dancers and musicians on the hallowed turf of the MCG.  It was the first time the grand final has been played in Melbourne in two years.

Earlier in September, G Flip told PEDESTRIAN.TV they were “very stoked” to be playing the AFL Grand Final after performing at the AFLW’s big game at Adelaide Oval last year.

“When I was a kid I did Auskick and they invite the Auskickers to play at half time,” they said.

“I got offered to play the MCG at half time and I think I was on a family holiday trip to Queensland or something so I missed out on it. I’ve been filthy about that ever since. So I’m very, very stoked that I get to still play at half time, even though I’m not playing Auskick.”

As a dyed-in-the-wool Collingwood supporter, G Flip has a lifelong dedication to watching footy wherever they can. From streaming on their phone on the side of the stage at Splendour In The Grass to waking up at unholy hours in the United States — they’ve rarely missed a Pies game.

“I’ve been the biggest AFL fan forever, it’s my sport,” they said.

“I have ‘Go Pies’ tattooed on me. I have all the afterparties for the AFLW. Sabrina Frederick — one of my best friends — plays for Collingwood. I’m friends with all the girls on the Collingwood team.

“I’ve watched Collingwood ever since I was a kid — every single game. I wake up at 3 or 4am to watch the Pies in America when I’m living over there.

“I remember my management when I first signed with them asked me what my goals were and I said ‘play at Splendour, play at a grand final’. It’s gonna be fun and there are discussions about [pyrotechnics], and we know how I feel about pyro.”
