Heineken Saturday's 20th anniversary at The Australian Open

Get ready to be part of a celebration like no other! As The Australian Open rolls into town for another festival of tennis, Heineken is returning to take centre stage for the best action off the court for the 20th year running.

Fans flocking from across Melbourne and the rest of the country, as well as those travelling from further afield, are all invited to join in the celebrations with the promise of premium beers, beats and good times aplenty. 

As part of a fortnight packed with entertainment, Heineken will be at the heart of the action, topped off with the biggest and most legendary event of them all. Heineken Saturday returns once again on the middle Saturday of the tournament (23 January) pumping loud and proud throughout the day.

Heineken Saturday has firmly established itself as one of Melbourne’s biggest annual events in recent years and this year will be no exception as Heineken gets set to celebrate its 20th anniversary at The Australian Open in style. It's an event not to be missed and you can be sure it'll be the hottest ticket in town on the day.

The headline act for Heineken Saturday 2016 is Hot Dub Time Machine, the world’s first time travelling dance party, who will count back the past 20 years of Heineken's partnership with The Australian Open and beyond. Fans should make sure they have their dancing shoes on and their singing voices at the ready with a playlist complete with iconic blockbuster hits sure to make the crowd go wild!

Fans that are wanting a piece of the Heineken Saturday action are encouraged to take note of the event theme: dress like a tennis legend. Go back in time and rock the fashion of tennis stars from past or go for a modern look as one of today's champions. It's time to don your tennis whites, headbands and sexy shorts and get into the spirit of the day!

The Heineken Live Stage will be bouncing every night throughout the tournament with an eclectic mix of some of Australia's hottest music acts and DJs performing for the crowd. Alongside Hot Dub Time Machine, The Rubens, British India and Dan Sultan are among a host of top names to feature on the bill, making the Heineken Live Stage the place to be for those wanting to party like it's 2016!
