Actually the performance of NERVO was coordinated with FIVB as they put out a press release for the collaboration. This is what the Nervo sisters had the following to say about the collaboration.
“As Australians, we’re no strangers to sport. But the party atmosphere of VNL matches is pretty special,” said Liv Nervo. “The energy between the players and the fans has been at the heart of the collaboration, and we can’t wait to be in Canada to add ‘Worlds Collide’ to the mix.”
NERVO did visit with the Netherlands wonen’s national team before their VNL matches in Appledoorn at the end of May. The Austrlian DJs had a busy weekend as they performed in Ibiza on Thursday, June 7th, before flying to Las Vegas to perform that evening on Friday June 8th and then to Ottawa for a gig on Saturday night.
Fernando Lima, Secretary General of the FIVB said,
“Sport and music are a fantastic mix as both deal with human creativity and capacity to engage with people. Volleyball has a global fan base and the VNL will provide a platform for great sport, alongside fantastic entertainment and an unforgettable fan experience. There will be an amazing party atmosphere and NERVO will be a big part of that. They are great ambassadors for our sport and ‘Worlds Collide’ is the perfect anthem for this competition.”
The sisters will perform “Worlds Collide” at the Women’s VNL Finals in Nanjing, China on June 27th and the Men’s VNL Finals in Lille, France on July 8th.
