Perth Band Voyager Will Be Representing Australia At Eurovision!
Synth-metal prog rockers and Perth locals Voyager are set to represent Australia in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest!
The five piece band first formed in 1999, and has since gained a huge following both at home and afar for their ’80s-inspired vocals, keytar solos and genre-bending stylings.
2023 will mark Australia’s eighth year as part of the competition, after first joining in 2015 as part of Eurovision’s 60th anniversary celebrations. Keen Eurovision enthusiasts, this also marks the eighth (triumphant) submission by the band to be a part of the competition, missing out by just three votes last year to Melbourne-based artist Sheldon Riley.
This year’s competition will be take place in May, hosted by the United Kingdom at Liverpool Arena – traditionally hosted by the previous year’s winners, Ukraine are unable to host due to the ongoing war with Russia.
This is also the final year of Australia’s contract with the Eurovision organisers, European Broadcasting Union – so this is potentially our last year in the competition!
