Taylor Swift Is Headlining The 2019 Melbourne Cup And We Need To Calm Down

1 min read

Get. Tickets. NOW.

We've had Sam Smith, Usain Bolt, Paris Jackson, Scott Disick, Dionne Warwick and more attend the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington Racecourse.

But 2019 is about to take the cake with Taylor Swift.

That's right, roll out the red carpet because we're welcoming Taylor Swift to Lexus Melbourne Cup Day (Tuesday 5 November). The horses better leave a Blank Space on the track because Tay Tay is going to be shaking it off in the Mounting Yard before The Race That Stops The Nation.

The superstar will perform two songs from her latest album Lover for the Aussie racegoers. 

While Taylor Swift will be hitting the the Mounting Yard, she joins the Aussie line up list featuring Ball Park Music, Birds of Tokyo, Dean Lewis and Kian who are set to shine on stage in The Park during the 2019 Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington Racecourse.

The mind-blowing announcement comes after Taylor Swift celebrated her new album at a tiny gig at L’Olympia Paris to perform album tracks from 'Lover' for the very first time.

Fans from over 37 countries around the world were hand picked by Taylor Swift to be the first to hear her new songs live. But now Aussie fans can get excited to hear him/her live very soon in November.

The Herald Sun reports that the deal to get Taylor out here was sealed by promoter Michael Gudinski.

Tickets for AAMI Victoria Derby Day on Saturday 2 November, Lexus Melbourne Cup Day on Tuesday 5 November, Kennedy Oaks Day on Thursday 7 November and Seppelt Wines Stakes Day on Saturday 9 November can be purchased at flemington.com.au.
