Lock N Load Events have teamed up with TNT to bring you the definitive antipodean summer festival – Southern Sounds. To gear up for the big event we’re giving away VIP tickets every fortnight. 

On Saturday 11th June 2011, the Southern Sounds festival comes to Clapham Common. The biggest Australian, New Zealand and South African gathering in Europe, Southern Sounds will feature a whole host of attractions and a selection of the greatest musicians from south of the Equator! 

Headlining this major outdoor event, Southern Sounds welcomes one of the world’s great bands, Australia’s INXS. With a career spanning 25 extraordinary years and 30 million albums sold, INXS return to the UK for their first performance in London in five years.  Alongside INXS we welcome Shihad, a band who have supported AC/DC, had three #1 albums and ranked 1st equal for the most top 40 charting singles in their home country of New Zealand. On the main stage we also present the most successful rock band ever from South Africa, Just Jinjer. Over in the biggest of our indoor arenas, Homelanz take control with special guests Jayson Norris, Townhall Steps, Lotus Mason, Melic. Finally in the Crooked arena we showcase exclusive DJ sets from Krafty Kuts, Adam Freeland, Utah Saints and Freestylers. 

With amusement park rides, surfboard simulators, bucking crocodiles plus London’s biggest BBQ serving up exotic meats such as kangaroo, springbok and wildebeest, Southern Sounds is set to be a day to remember!
