AO Live Stage

What's On

Rethink the sounds of Tennis at the AO Live Stage.

One of Melbourne’s most popular music events is returning this January, with 15 days of consecutive music, including the hugely popular Coopers Saturday on 19 January. We’ll be hosting some of Australia’s biggest music acts, along with some incredible visitors from across the globe!

We’re excited to welcome the likes of Craig David and full band (UK), Bastille (UK), Dean Lewis (AUS) and Angus & Julia Stone (AUS) to the AO Live Stage, with the full line-up to be released on 28 November. Be part of this amazing line-up and get your tickets now!

To kick-start the 15-day festival, the AO Live Stage will host a fundraiser for beyondblue on the eve of the Australian Open, Sunday 13 Jan, headline acts to be announced. 

Come for the tennis, stay for the music. Alternatively, come for the music and treat yourself to a little world-class tennis in between. Whichever way you see it, the AO Live Stage is the perfect platform to put a slightly different spin on your typical night out. With the city of Melbourne as the backdrop, get your friends and family together to unwind and witness some fabulous live music.

The AO Live Stage, at Birrarung Marr, opens from 3pm each day, except Coopers Saturday when we will invite you in from 10am. An Australian Open 2019 ticket is required to enter the AO Live Stage.
