Punters who have purchased a Rod Laver Arena ticket or ground pass on the three days of 27, 28, and 29 February can upgrade to enter Kia Arena for Finals Festival for an extra $5. Conversely, those interested in attending for music can purchase a Finals Festival ticket for $34 each session.
"The Finals Festival will be an incredible way to wrap up what is shaping up as a spectacular AO23,” Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley said.
“It’s an exciting new initiative for the AO, which has always led the way with music and entertainment alongside the world-class tennis. The Finals Festival also gives us the opportunity to showcase our newest stadium, Kia Arena, in a unique new way.”
