Thanks to funding and support from South Australia’s Music Development Office, Space Jams continued to hit music-lovers’ devices each and every month with 10+ hours of the nation’s best live acts, including West Thebarton, DyspOra, TOWNS, Wanderers, Tom West, Ollie English, Alana Jagt, Horror My Friend ,Teenage Joans, and many many more.
