TLC, Client Liaison, Ali Barter & More: The Aus Open ace their 2018 lineup

It's the Australian Open's largest lineup of artists yet. 

This year's Australian Open lineup is a certified grand slam, boasting top-tier bands and artists across multiple genres. 

Each installment features two acts in a potent musical pairing. Think of it as the musical version of a doubles match. 

Opening it all up will be Jimmy Barnes alongside Dallas Crane, with Vera Blue and Dean Lewis taking to the stage the following day. Further highlights include The Jungle Giants alongside The Creases; James Reyne and Daryl Braithwaite; Rudimental alongside Jakubi; and Client Liason alongside Northeast Party House. 

There'll also be sets from Meg Mac, Angie McMahon, Illy, Pierce Brothers, Ash Grunwald, The Rubens, Gretta Ray, Tina Arena and Ali Barter headlining the women's final, r&b legends TLC, and more.

Throughout the tournament access to the AO Live Stage will be open to anyone who has an Australian Open ground pass or stadium ticket.  

Basically, if you're heading along to the Aus Open this season, you'll be scoring some brilliant live music too. After the success of last year's program, 2018 is set to soar even higher. 

It's all going down from January 14 - January 28 the middle terrace of Birrarung Marr. Tickets are available now via Ticketek
