Highway to Hell is a once-in-a generation opportunity for residents and visitors to ‘reclaim’ Canning Highway for a day of community celebration.

Highway to Hell at Perth Festival

Taking inspiration from the AC/DC song, Highway to Hell will be the world’s longest stage and Perth’s playground for a day as the free, family-friendly finale to the 2020 Perth Festival in partnership with the City of Melville, City of Fremantle and Town of East Fremantle.

Highway to Hell is a once-in-a generation opportunity for residents and visitors to enjoy an afternoon and evening of live performances and other free activities between the Canning and Fremantle Traffic bridges on Sunday 1 March over the Labour Day long weekend.

Diverse local and international acts will perform AC/DC songs from stages on the back of semi-trailers in a slow “hit parade” from Applecross to Fremantle, starting at 5.00pm and ending at 8.30pm.
