Be prepared for tennis-mania to swarm Melbourne over the next few weeks as the Australian Open kicks off once again. The two week tournament will see tennis fans flee to Melbourne Park, with the men’s final closing the show on Australia Day.
Not all the action will take place on the courts, with the Grand Slam Oval hosting enough Australian musical talent to keep every fan in good spirits. From young artists British India and Owl Eyes, to favourites Daryl Braithwaite and Jon Stevens, to international act Pete Tong of BBC Radio 1, there’s no shortage of variety. Clare Bowditch and the Rubens will be taking control of the fun, as they headline the women’s and men’s finals.
