In February, 2010, 20000 music fans marched on the streets of Melbourne to support live music. It changed government policy.
The Slam Rally was the unified voice of the music industry in Melbourne.
Now it is going national.
February 23, 2012 has been declared National Slam Day. Artists, venues and community groups are now invited to get involved.
Helen Marcou and Quincy McLean are the people that made Slam happen.
