Southern Sounds is “gonna be huge, mate”

Clapham Common is set to rock to Southern Sounds with sensational homegrown music, surf simulators, bucking crocodiles and London’s biggest barbecue and braai.

The Southern Sounds festival takes place on Clapham Common in London on 11 June 2011. It is billed as the year’s biggest Australian, New Zealand and South African gathering in Europe.

Southern Sounds is the brainchild of the Australian promoter of the massively successful South West Four Weekender, Damian Gelle.

This new festival was conceived by Gelle as a chance to hook up with friends and party with new ones while rocking out to the best music from Downunder.

Boasting an amazing homegrown line-up, featuring INXS, Shihad, Goldfish, Just Jinjer and I Am Giant, the Southern Sounds festival will also feature a whole host of attractions from under the Southern Cross, Gelle told us.

“We’ve got amusement rides, surf simulators, bucking crocodiles and London’s largest barbecue and braai sizzle.

“It’s gonna be huge, mate,” Gelle said.
