It started as a rumble in the suburbs. Glen Waverly to Hallam, Ferntree Gully to Frankston in every beer soaked band room in between, each weekend brought the best live talent Australia had to offer to the churning masses.

Midnight Oil, Radio Birdman, AC/DC - they all cut their teeth playing to the assembled tribes that merged together at the end of the working week to dance, and drink, and party. Chrissie Amphlett raged, The Models pouted, and INXS strutted week in, week out in darkened rooms nestled far away from the looming city.

As the years went on, the scene changed. Weekend warriors found their new battleground in the form of the electric Melbourne skyline, leaving behind empty band rooms and slowing the suburban heartbeat.

Until now.

Like any good movement, the voice may be muffled but the heartbeat remains. The growing demand for a local alternative night out with the same coveted artists without the astronomic costs involved with a night in the city led to the inception of Urban Spread.

This Summer Urban Spread will bring the biggest names in Australian rock, indie, alt rock, hardcore, punk, blues & roots, hip-hop and just about anything else you can think of to Geelong, Frankston, Mulgrave and Chelsea Heights and any other local hide out.

With solid line-ups each month, and a strict no dickheads policy, Urban Spread presented by the TAC brings live music back where it should - at the local.

Transport Accident Commission

Victoria has come a long way in reducing road trauma, but we still have a long way to go. Road safety is a responsibility that is shared by all. Because no one deserves to die on our roads. It is up to us, the new generation of drivers to not only believe that a zero road toll is achievable, but that we deserve it. We can make it happen.

The TAC has partnered with Urban Spread to bring live music back to the suburbs. Enjoy the mosh pit, the music, the magic with your mates but always remember to plan ahead to make sure you are getting home safe.
