Sydney, 6 March 2017: Marking Heineken® Saturday’s much anticipated debut at Melbourne's 2017 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix in suitable style, UK award-winning super group Rudimental will deliver a show-stopping performance with an exclusive DJ set incorporating their front man MC Leon Rolle, live vocalist Tom Jules and instrumentalist Mark Crown.

Rudimental will be supported on the day with a stellar line-up including rising star Hayden James. The singer/songwriter will showcase his renowned mixing skills, transitions and mood settings to amp up the crowd, with ‘Permission to Love’ and ‘Something About You’ set to be among the days’ highlights.
There will be even more special performances throughout the weekend as a selection of some of Australia's hottest local talent will also get their chance to shine on one of the brightest stages in Australia's annual social calendar.
