A huge line-up of local talent will keep the good times rolling at the 2016 Australian Open, with the year’s first Grand Slam today announcing its bumper live music program.
Taking place between 6pm and 7pm each evening on the Grand Slam Oval during the two-week tennis tournament, the daily music performances are open to Australian Open ticket holders.
Highlights include Dan Sultan getting the party started on Monday 18 January, British India performing on Women’s Final day on Saturday 30 January, The Rubens rocking the Heineken Live Stage on Australia Day and Hot Dub Time Machine bringing his dancefloor-filling history lesson to the middle weekend of the tournament, a day that drew a record 81,031 fans to Melbourne Park in January.
Mushroom Group Chairman Michael Gudinski said he’s delighted to again team up with the Australian Open. “Mushroom is very proud to be involved with the Tennis: music and sport are a wonderful combination,” he says. “It’s fantastic to see Tennis Australia getting behind Australian music and looking at a wide range of artists to showcase to the many visitors to Grand Slam Oval during the Australian Open.”
