The Stop The Violence Festival is back but has had a massive makeover...The powerful message that this event carries Is exactly as it alway has been!!! ...except this time its personal!!!
After the tragic death of our much loved and dear friend Cara Hales late last year, we knew that Stop The Violence 6 had to be a full tribute to her and a celebration of her life!!! SUNFLOWERS FOR CARA will be a massive indoor music festival held in #Bunbury on Saturday The 29th of June and will feature 28 Band's covering many genres of Live Music!!! We will be using the full complex at The Burlington Hotel Bunbury and the 28 Live Acts will be spread across 3 Stages over the course of 8 Hours!!!
Once again we will be raising money and awareness for Relationships Australia, with all proceeds ti be donated to help provide important services.
We will once again be making a very powerful and united stance against #DomesticViolence and also all forms of violence against women!!!

So peeps, for many reasons this is a very special show...NOT TO BE MISSED!!!

STOP THE VIOLENCE 6 Will be organised and promoted by Global Metal Machine and it's offshoot #GlobalMusicMachine (Kelvin Edward Whitwell , Andrew Whitwel(Froggy) , Michayla Spencer(Micca) and the one n only Mook Ellis) ...

Underneath you will find a list of stunning live srtists and bands that are locked in and ready to stand up to violence!!!
