AUSTRALIAN Made: 30th Anniversary Edition will screen exclusively in Innaloo this month to celebrate a turning point in the Australian music industry.

Borne out of a frustration for the lack of respect and recognition in the Australian music industry, 1986 saw the first ARIA awards and soon after, the staging of a series of outdoor festivals in the summer of 1986-87 under the banner Australian Made.

The festival saw almost 140,000 fans in six cities witness performances from a line-up of artists including INXS, Jimmy Barnes, Divinyls, Models, The Saints, The Triffids and I’m Talking.

As INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence said during the tour, “It’s grownup time. We’ve come of age. This has proved that we’re part of the world music scene.”

Australian Made: 30th Anniversary Edition will screen once at Event Cinemas on Friday, November 25 at 7pm.
