2014 The X Factor winner Marlisa Punzalan

Marlisa Punzalan was the youngest winner of The X Factor when she took the title in 2014.

The Western Sydney girl will headline Fairfield City Council’s 2015 Bring It On! Festival on April 19. Marlisa was only 14 years old when she wowed the judges in her audition for The X Factor and delivered some outstanding performances, with a total of three hits ranking in the top 40 on the iTunes charts.

Marlisa will lead a big-line up of local youth talent at this year’s festival including With Confidence and Team 9Lives, which is the biggest National Youth Week event in NSW. Last year more than 12,000 young people flocked to Fairfield Showground to join the Bring It On! Festival celebrations.

The festival is part of the National Youth Week celebrations which runs from 10-19 April 2015. Youth Week aims to shine a spotlight on people aged 12 – 25 and provide an opportunity for young people to share ideas, attend live events, have their voices heard on issues of concern to them and showcase their talents. 

The Bring It On! Festival 2015 will feature three stages of entertainment, with Marlisa, Team 9Lives, the Trick it On! Tricking competition, amusement and Monster Truck rides, food stalls and loads of entertainment. 

Entry is free with free transport from Cabramatta, Canley Vale and Fairfield train stations. 

Bring It On! is a drug and alcohol-free event. It runs from 10.30am to 5pm, and it all ends with the all-ages LOUD TR!BE Project Dance Party from 5pm to 7.30pm.
