Expect smash hits both on and off the court this Australian Open season

Whether or not you're a tennis fan, you'll want to head to Melbourne Park this summer and check out all the action on offer. In addition to tennis stars battling it out on court for grand slam glory, the Open Sessions will see top-notch Australian and international musicians ripping it up on the Australian Open Live Stage. 

The series of gigs begins on Saturday January 14 with free concerts on two consecutive nights. First up is so-hot-right-now rapper Tkay Maidza. The next day, the much-loved Missy Higgins (pictured) will take to the stage, supported by Archie Roach and Ben Abraham.

And there's more once the tournament begins: expect the likes of Birds of Tokyo (Jan 16), a Superband with Jon Stevens, Daryl Braithwaite and Ross Wilson (Jan 17), The Temper Trap (Jan 18), The Living End (Jan 19), Jimmy Eat World (Jan 20), Peking Duk (Sat 21) and DMA's (Jan 22). You can also catch all the tennis action on the big screens, so don’t worry; you won’t miss a serve. Sounds pretty ace if you ask us.

The gigs are free if you've already bought a ticket to that day's tennis. Ground passes start at $25 for adults, and $5 for kids, and get you access to all that's on offer at the Australian Open.
