from her hectic work schedule, flying in to Melbourne on the day of Sound

already phenomenal lineup. She’s our girl.” Michael Gudinski said.

meet demand, with an additional release just added. A final addition to the
Sydney lineup is expected to be announced any day now with organizers
dropping hints that a few surprises can be expected on the day.
