SLAM Goes National

Written by Svetlana Huffington on December 1, 2011

On 23rd February 2010, the SLAM rally saw 20,000 people march through Melbourne to the tune of AC/DC’s Long Way to the Top, in protest against the Victorian Government’s misguided policy link between live music and violence. Out on the streets of Melbourne, Australians showed our support and love for a truly great live music community. The SLAM rally was the largest cultural protest in Australia’s history.

Now the SLAM organisers have announced that February 23rd 2012 will be a national day to celebrate live music in Australia. Music communities around Australia are now invited to host their own National SLAM Day gigs.

Support a National SLAM Day event in your town – any style, any genre. It’s easy to get involved:

– Venues can register their gigs on the SLAM website at slamrally.org. It’s free to sign up.

– Musicians can join with their local venues to curate a National SLAM Day gig.

– Gig-goers can celebrate live music and local musicians in their own neighbourhood.

– Community groups can host their own National SLAM Day gig.
