SLAM rally goes national

On 23rd February 2010, the SLAM (Save Live Australia’s Music) rally saw 20,000 people march through Melbourne to the tune of AC/DC’s definitive Long Way to the Top protesting against the Victorian Government’s baffling claims that live music and violence were connected.

The rally was the largest cultural protest in Australia’s history and the organizers are now calling on venues and bands from around Australia to host their own National SLAM Day gigs and support local live music.

Musicians can join with their local venues to curate a National SLAM Day gig and venues can register their gigs on the SLAM website at
