Heinken serving up another chilled summer baseline

Heinken serving up another chilled summer baseline

The Heineken Open Baseline After Party is once again set to be the grand finale to a week of great tennis with the announcement of headline acts The Phoenix Foundation and Barnaby Weir. 

 Progressive six-piece rock indie band The Phoenix Foundation launched their album ‘Buffalo’ earlier this year after having been awarded ‘Best Group’ at the 2010 NZ Music Awards.

Joining Wellington’s intelligent and infectiously catchy band The Phoenix Foundation, will be fellow talented Wellingtonian artist Barnaby Weir. The former Black Seeds front man has taken a step to the side, taking the spotlight with him, and is set to bring to life songs from his first solo album ‘Tarot Card Rock’. 

Heineken Brand Manager, Mike Stribrny says “Now in its fourth year, the Heineken Open Baseline After Party is a fixture of the early January social calendar as a great way to ease into the New Year and celebrate a week of great tennis. The Heineken bean bags are perfect for chilling out in the afternoon sun, enjoying a cold Heineken and listening to some awesome kiwi bands. We’re rapt to have The Phoenix Foundation and Barnaby Weir joining our celebration in the sun and we’re just negotiating a couple more acts to play on the night. Watch this space.” 

The Heineken Baseline After Party kicks off as soon as the 2012 Heineken Open final presentation ends on January 14th. 

Heineken Baseline After Party ticket holders can enter the ASB Tennis Centre at the start of play and enjoy the final match on the back courts. The matches are played out on mega screens so no one misses out on the on-court action and everyone is in prime position for when the party gets started.
