Slam Festival @ Cronulla Beach, Sydney (15/03/08)

Created On March 18th, 2008 by haydenf

Slam Festival is volleyball with a difference; for once it’s not watching dudes in budgie smugglers. It’s been operating around Australia since 2000, and rewards its players for the stranger and more original costumes, such as one team wearing their best eighties gear with mullets included to the all-male team wearing their nana’s nighties, as well as scoring the most points. And the volleyball isn’t the only attraction, as Slam has been able to get some of the biggest names in the Australian club scene to DJ, with previous artist as Kid Kenobi, Bang Gang, Sneaky and the headliner for the Cronulla leg of the festival Carl Kennedy.

The Slam festival also gives the chance to many local artist to show off their stuff, with DJs such a MarcUS playing in the lineup and local designer Amy Taylor showing off her unique designs with her own team competing. With the day starting around ten for registration and an eleven o’clock competition start, the day was given a full day of beautiful Cronulla weather. With the competition slots all being filled before the event, it was already going to prove popular and this is no surprise since last year’s competition attracting over 6000 players alone. When the volleyball and sun become too much for you, there are many other activities to entertain you such as, the Banana Boat Sun Scream Massage Tent and the Lipton Camouflage Tent providing free ice-cold red tea.

The Slam festival competition is set up in two medal categories: the slam plate and the slam bowl. The two winners of these divisions go on to compete for the slam cup, where second place compete for the slam plate and third place for the slam bowl. The Slam Festival is an all-ages free event and though it may be sponsored by Corona there was sadly no Corona beer tent, but there was plenty of people enjoying a corona or two at the after party at Northies which was conveniently positioned directly across from Cronulla beach where the competition went down. Cronulla was the last stop in NSW for the Slam crew and looks like it won’t be till next summer till we can expect a return, so until then practice your spikes, digs and volleys and get started on your costume, and to catch Carl Kennedy check out Famous every Saturday night at Home Nightclub.
