Tennis Australia and Mushroom Events are stoked to announce the tournament’s biggest ever music-line up with more than two weeks of music at Australian Open 2018.

Kicking off the month of live music is ARIA award winner Jimmy Barnes and Melbourne rock band Dallas Crane on Sunday 14th January, seeing Daryl Braithwaite, Hoodoo Gurus, Pierce Brothers, Ash Grunwald, The Rubens and a special Australian Crawl set by James Reyne filling out the months of live music.


The HUGE line-up of musicians will play the AO Live Stage, located once again at the middle terrace of Birrarung Marr following a very successful debut series of shows last summer.

Mushroom Group Chairman Michael Gudinski said the huge music program featuring big names will once again make the Australian Open a special place to be in January:

“In the true tradition of Melbourne being the music capital, Tennis Australia continue to commit to the programming of great music,” Mr Gudinski said.
