The Australian Open's 15-day music festival is back, and bigger than ever

What is it: Fifteen days of live music on the banks of the Yarra River in the heart of the Australian Open precinct.

Go if you like: Being in the centre of the action. The Australian Open's entertainment precinct is buzzing in January with sports-lovers, food pop-ups and a massive line-up of daily live music from stellar Aussie bands. 

The line-up: Highlight gigs include dance duo Peking Duk, Aussie legend Jimmy Barnes (Jan 14), Melbourne singer-songwriter Meg Mac (Jan 18), hip-hop favourite Illy (Jan 20), 'Horses' superstar Daryl Braithwaite (Jan 22), Triple J darlings The Rubens (Jan 23), '80s-pop kings Client Liaison (Jan 24) and 'No Scrubs' ladies TLC (Jan 28). The best part? Entry is free with your Ground Pass, so you can soak up all the on-court action as well as rocking live music.
