"ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR LIVE MUSIC" - neil armstrong

After the overnight eradication of Australia’s live performance industry in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Josh Morphett paved the way for live music enthusiasts to continue to access live music from wherever they and their handheld device were in the world.

What originated as a one-off way for Morphett, and a handful of Adelaide-based musicians to play music for their fans – Space Jams quickly gained interest with artists requesting to be added to “the next one” – wait, what next one? 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.

“…this ten-hour long marathon is perhaps the best thing South Australian music fans can hope for until local [live music] venues are able to reopen” – The Adelaide Review

Only a few months after the inevitable closing of pubs, under tight government-issued restrictions music venues were able to reopen. Morphett took no time in organising the first real-life Space Jams festival hosted at Jive. With a knockout lineup headlined by Wing Defence it was a sell-out and Adelaide live music fans were craving more.
