Maren Morris, Ellie Goulding and En Vogue and more headlining an exciting upcoming concert series that features an all-female lineup.
These iconic and trailblazing women artists are headlining an exclusive, live three-day concert series at the annual Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, which kicks off the LPGA Tour season in January. This year’s all-women music lineup is what drew artists like Maren to headline the series, as she has advocated for more inclusivity in the industry.
Hilton Grand Vacations Inc. (NYSE:HGV), the industry-leading global vacation ownership company, announces a live three-day concert series headlined by En Vogue, Maren Morris and Ellie Goulding at the world-class 2023 Hilton Grand Vacations (HGV) Tournament of Champions, which will be held Jan. 17, 19 and 21 in Orlando’s Lake Nona.
The concert series celebrates the return of the highly anticipated HGV Tournament of Champions, which features LPGA Tour winners playing alongside approximately 50 celebrities, athletes and entertainers in one of golf’s most unique events. With six live performances featuring iconic and trailblazing women artists across musical genres, this year’s concert series is sure to have something for everyone. The all-female musical lineup was specially curated by HGV to honor the fifth year of the annual tournament that serves as the kickoff to the LPGA Tour season and is one of the LPGA’s most-watched events of the year.
In addition, through the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, HGV Serves, this year’s tournament will once again support Annika Sörenstam’s ANNIKA Foundation, which expands opportunities for female golfers at the junior, collegiate and professional levels.
“Empowering women through golf is exactly what the HGV Tournament of Champions is all about,” said Gordon Gurnik, senior executive vice president and chief operating officer of Hilton Grand Vacations. “We’re delighted to welcome some of the biggest female names in music to kick off this year’s tournament. As one of the most exciting events on the LPGA Tour, we’re thrilled to host private events for this all-star music lineup, and invite fans to see the best golfers in the world compete alongside some of our favorite celebrities.”
The four-day HGV Tournament of Champions will be televised nationally on NBC and Golf Channel and the exclusive three-night concert series is open to tournament sponsors, participants and invited guests. Each concert will feature a headline performance beginning with the timeless R&B icons En Vogue on Tuesday, Jan. 17, Grammy-winning Country-Pop star Maren Morris on Thursday, Jan. 19 and pop superstar Ellie Goulding on Saturday, Jan. 21. All three headliners will be followed by performances beginning with EDM vocalist Emma Hewitt on Jan. 17. Additional acts will be announced soon.
The tournament’s one-of-a-kind format features LPGA Tour winners from the previous two seasons competing for a $1.5 million purse. Celebrities join them on the course to compete for a separate prize of $500,000.

With HGV hosting the tournament for the first time in January 2022 following its acquisition of Diamond Resorts, last year’s event was the most attended LPGA Tour season opener in history. The 2023 HGV Tournament of Champions will return to the renowned, championship golf course at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club in Orlando on January 16-22.
Celebrity participants, LPGA Tour professionals and visiting guests will be hosted at HGV’s best-in-class Orlando resorts. With 154 upscale, upper upscale and luxury timeshare resorts, HGV has been one of the most trusted names in high-quality vacation ownership for 30 years.
