This Sunday's epic end to Perth Fest 2020 has the potential to be the most epic ending of all time if a little plan to break the world record for the LARGEST ENSEMBLE OF AIR GUITARISTS EVER ASSEMBLED!!!



For the uninitiated, the Canning Highway will close down to traffic this Sunday, March 1, as Perth pays homage to one of the world's biggest rock stars (and one of their own), Bon Scott.

Although never 100% confirmed, the rumours abound that AC/DC's Highway To Hell was written about Perth's Canning Highway, and in particular, Bon's commute from Freo to the Raffles Hotel, where he worked for some time.

Perth's other massive rock star, current state Air Guitar champion Billy Damage, is recruiting his Air Guitar brethren and encouraging everyone in Perth who's keen to break a world record, to join them and help try and break record on what will be an epic day for all AC/DC and Bon fans.

Already, Australia's second ranked Air Guitarist, Jinja Assassin, has signed up and will lead with Billy out front.

They've assured us that only basic choreography will be the feature of the performance, so if you've ever wanted to be part of a rocking world record and can be in Perth this SUnday, bring your air guitar to the ‘Tompkins Zone’ (Tompkins Park, Alfred Cove) for 3:30pm, Sunday 1st March.

The magic number to beat is 2,377. Come on Perth, you can do it!

If nothing else, do it for this guy!
