The inaugural National SLAM (Save Live Australian Music) Day was held on February 23 last year, on the anniversary of the SLAM rally which swept through the streets of Melbourne in protest against over-arching Victorian liquor licensing policies than unfairly linked live music to high risk activity. SLAM Day is a campaign aimed at the broader community as an event that celebrates our local musicians and our small gigs.

SLAM Day has been embraced all around the country, with thousands of musicians and tens of thousands of punters participating in gigs all over the country, raising awareness and support for local music industries and small live venues.

Find a small live gig in your town on February 23, go out and give your support to the local live music industry.
