From as long as I can remember I've always sung! But never took it seriously

5. Which famous musicians do you admire? Why?

We have a special announcment.....
22 days out from the festival and we are so proud to announce we are supporting Love Your Sister.
For those of you who don’t know about Love Your Sister -
Connie has fought cancer three times in her life and Samuel has been with her every step of the way. This time things are different. Connie is dying and she doesn't have much time left.
Faced with the fight of her life, she set Samuel the toughest challenge she could think of. It started as a joke in the kitchen. It turned into a promise.
The goal? To set a new Guinness World Record for the most distance travelled on a unicycle, raise $1 million and spread Connie's message of breast cancer awareness.
Samuel kept his promise to Connie and after travelling 15,955 kilometres over 364 days and raising nearly $1.5 million, on Thursday the 13th February 2014 he finished what was then the world's longest unicycle journey.
Not content to rest on their laurels Connie and Sam have set a new goal to raise $10 million dollars!
This is where our festival family comes in! We would love for all ticket holders to give a gold coin donation on arrival! You will also see the Love Your Sister merchandise tent onsite.
Inverloch Sounds of Summer will be donating to this wonderful cause and we are hoping to do the most we possibly can! We can confirm if we sell all 5,000 tickets we are able to donate $10,000!
We are proud of all the local businesses and community groups that are involved with Sounds of Summer but after being contacted by one of Love Your Sister’s volunteers last week, we realised our festival is capable of so much more!
This has reminded us we are here to make a difference in this world, to spread love, to show kindness and help each other where we can.
How incredible you get to enjoy a beautiful day out listening to great musicians, sipping on delicious wine and eating scrumptious food knowing you have been a part of something pretty special!
