Bon Scott left this Earth over four decades ago. Nonetheless, his influence is impossible to ignore, and AC/DC fans still adore him.

Want proof? On March 1, 2020 before the world quite literally shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic, AC/DC fans came out en masse in Perth, Australia. Why? To honor the 40th anniversary of Bon Scott’s untimely death with an epic festival that shut down a local highway.

Per Australia’s ABC News, over 150,000 people came out for “Highway to Hell,” a festival along Canning Highway, one of Perth’s busiest roads, which was shut down and turned into one long concert stage where eight different bands performed various AC/DC songs on trucks that drove down the 10-kilometer stretch of road.

In addition to the rolling concert, the festival also accomplished a new world record. The record was aptly for “Biggest Air Guitar Gathering” with 3,722 people taking part.

Overhead video of the festival can be seen below, as well as a gallery of images from the event.
