AC/DC fans came out en masse yesterday (March 1) in Perth, Australia 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 the new world record 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.
