Camila Cabello commented: “I’m so excited to be taking to the stage at UEFA Champions League final in Paris this month! I intend on putting on a really special show, bringing together the spirit of my Latin heritage and a feeling of togetherness for sports and music fans all over the world - I can’t wait!”
To announce Camila’s performance at the UEFA Champions League final, Pepsi MAX shared a short video via its YouTube channel offering a glimpse of what fans can expect in Paris. In the clip, Camila is surrounded by a developing avenue of playful animations and floral patterns, which take inspiration from the iconic Oaxaca carnival in Mexico. The vibrant colours have purposefully been used to channel the feeling of togetherness and celebrate people of all walks of life coming together, showcasing how the power of music and sport can unite people all around the world.
